Year 11 students Cody and Joshua have been recognised with Commendations for Brave Conduct in the Australian Bravery Awards on 26 August.
The Governor-General announced the Australian Bravery Awards to recognise and celebrate the courage of 29 Australians; of whom Josh and Cody are the only South Australian recipients.
Josh and Cody were recognised for rescuing Trish Woodham, 73 and her dog from drowning in the Coromandel Valley lake in July 2019.
Trish nominated the boys for the Award and is ‘extremely proud and thrilled for their recognition’.
It was an exciting morning at South Plympton Campus last Wednesday 26 August with Channel 10 interviewing them live for Studio 10 and for Channel 10.
Congratulations Cody and Josh! You have made our community, state and nation extremely proud!
