“A new parent at the school, Nicole joined the Cannon Hill State School P&C in March 2020 during the newly developing COVID 19 pandemic. Without hesitation, Nicole took on the position of Vice President. In the time since, Nicole has been the linchpin of the committee. She rewrote our advertising and sponsorship materials, wrote countless grant applications - securing thousands of dollars for our school, coordinated significant events, volunteered at Breakfast Club, the secondhand uniform stalls, Mothers and Fathers Day stalls. A town planner in her day job, Nicole has brought rigour and careful planning to everything she has done. She has balanced countless hours of P&C volunteering with her own job, and her family responsibilities - which include two very young children! In addition to this, Nicole has shared the materials and processes she has developed with other P&Cs throughout Queensland. We are so thankful to have Nicole on our P&C committee and she would be most deserving of a Griffith Australia Day volunteering award."
