Mr BUCHHOLZ (Wright) (13:47): I bring excellent news to the House. I would like to shine a light on the incredible youth talent of a young athlete in my electorate. Local track star—superstar—Riley Day, has continued her run of success. The Australian flag-bearer took silver in the girls’ 100 metres before a winning surge in the final propelled the Beaudesert schoolgirl to a gold medal in the girls’ 200 metres event at the Commonwealth Youth Games recently in the Bahamas. Riley will now make her senior international debut at the world championships in London. What a feat! Riley Day has continued as a community member, and we could not be more proud of her for the work she is doing. We wish her the best of luck.
Also in my electorate, I want to congratulate the recent The Voice winner, Judah Kelly. His local debut album, Count on Me, was released two weeks ago, and he is about to head off to the Gympie Music Muster for one of the biggest country music events of his first solo tour. We wish him the best there. Judah, you followed your dreams and you are an inspiration to all young people. I look forward to following your singing success.
Finally, congratulations to seven students and two teachers from Tamborine Mountain College who successfully completed the recent Kokoda Challenge under the most trying of conditions. I would encourage any members of this House who are looking to burn a couple of kilos that the Kokoda Trail is a great place to leave them! I commend the students and teachers for honouring the service and sacrifice of the fallen, and for every Australian who has served in that space.
