Sophie Goes The Distance

Baulkham Hills State Liberal MP David Elliott took time from the campaign trail last week to present 11 year old Sophie Schultz of Baulkham Hills with a “Premier’s Recognition Award”, acknowledging the Excelsior Public School student on her remarkable achievements as a long distance runner.

Mr Elliott hosted Sophie in his office to receive the Premier’s framed certificate.

Sophie, who commences Year 6 this week, said she has been running the three kilometre long distance course through both school and athletics competitions.

“I congratulate Sophie on her stamina and dedication in what is a very challenging sport and look forward to reading about her future successes,” Mr Elliott said.
