Mr MARK COURE (OatleyMinister for Multiculturalism, and Minister for Seniors)

——Speaker, I rise to congratulate a member of my local community and the General Manager of Share, Adrian Prakash, for his important contributions to the community during the COVID-19 lockdown. Adrian recently received a 2021 St George Community Award for assisting Share during a time of great difficulty for our State. Share is a community organisation that aims to enhance the wellbeing of those over 55 through exercise and personal development. During the COVID-19 lockdown last year, Adrian displayed creativity and innovation in running a range of Share's programs online. This was achieved through the use of YouTube videos for those who only had access to a mobile phone, as well as a range of online Zoom classes. I would like to commend Adrian on his efforts during this period. The COVID-19 lockdown was certainly not an easy time for any of us, and it is fantastic that local heroes like Adrian continued to care for the wider community during this time. I would like to again congratulate Adrian for receiving this award, and wish him all the best in his future endeavours.
