Georgia Kehagias announced South Australia’s Student Citizen of the Year


Year 12 Immanuel college School Captain, Georgia Kehagias was announced South Australia’s Student Citizen of the Year for 2021 and was presented with an award by the Governor of SA Frances Adamson in a ceremony held at the Government House on Monday 29 November. 

“We are immensely proud of Georgia and grateful for her contribution to Immanuel College. We wish her the very best in the future as she begins her next exciting chapter,” reads a message posted on the school’s social media page. 

The Student Citizenship Awards program is the flagship endeavour of the SA Branch of the Order of Australia Association and recognises young people who show leadership and contribute to their school and broader community and exemplify the Association’s objective, “to celebrate and promote outstanding Australian citizenship”.

According to the school Ms Kehagias has contributed her time and energy as School Captain to lead several initiatives such as the College’s buddy system to support international students through early COVID times and her work on Relay for Life and has a “passionate desire to help and support others.”

“Georgia is an exceptional role model who has had a positive and valued impact on her school and community,” reads the school’s post. 

The Greek Orthodox Community of The Nativity of Christ in Port Adelaide have also congratulated Ms Kehagias for this achievement.

Georgia and her beautiful family are pious members of our Parish,” reads the Community’s post.
