Congratulations to Bassam Maaliki of Year 11 for being nominated and reaching the final 4 in the category of NSW Young Australian of the Year Awards for 2020 for his work as a refugee advocate and fundraiser. Bassam is a second generation Lebanese Australian Muslim who at the age of 14 set up the #UBelong project to help all refugees, regardless of background or ethnicity, to feel at home in Australia.

By creating and selling key-shaped badges – a symbol of belonging – Bassam has raised more than $60,000 for refugee support groups and charities. People who buy Bassam's badges can wear them in solidarity with refugees, migrants and all people seeking asylum, helping raise awareness about the challenges of refugees and the importance of multicultural inclusion.

On the 4th of November 2019, the 2019-2020 Prefect Team was privileged to attend the National Young Leader’s Day at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre to a plethora of inspirational and motivational speakers, who shared their successes and defeats through life and the lessons they learned from them.

He spoke about the importance of parents and the paramount role they have in their children’s lives, and how we as the younger generation take what they do for granted. John further iterated the value of experience in shaping our individual and collective human experiences, saying that “Life is about getting out of your comfort zone.” John ended his speech by emphasising the importance of goal setting and the motivation they provide in times of hardship and the forward direction they put us on through our journey of life.
