Dear Mount Burnettavistas,

I am very pleased to write about a plan that has come to fruition. About six months ago one of our newest members donated a sum of money to fund a science prize at one of the local schools. So this week my colleague Heike will be presenting the first “Young Prime” award to an Emerald Secondary student. Thank you Mia Cobb for funding this prize and for having the confidence that MBO would look after the request.

The science prize is an example of how MBO is having an impact in our community. We have been building our connection with Emerald Secondary College for some time now. But there are other schools, and other community groups. If you have an idea (no matter how crazy) and you would like to see us run something in or for your school then please let us know at and we promise to follow it up.
