Korowa’s Principal, Mrs Helen Carmody said “Laura has done extremely well this year, three perfect study scores, this is a first for Korowa. Not only has Laura achieved great things academically but she has been an active member of our School throughout her years at Korowa, contributing to the community and getting involved”.
