When she’s not in the pool, Amy is an acclaimed vocalist — performing at events including Telethon and the Anglican Schools Commission Select Choir, as well as several school events and productions.

Her talent doesn’t stop there, with the bright spark also playing several instruments.

As part of the esteemed accolade, Amy received a $2000 cash grant and a $1000 Ampol gift card, in addition to a $2000 grant for her school.

Georgiana Molloy Anglican School head of senior school Stephen Treloar said Amy was the “perfect example” of what the award represented and called it an “honour”.

“Her incredible swimming accomplishments combined with her exemplary community and school service is why Amy is a deserving recipient of the inaugural Western Australia Best All Rounder award,” he said.
