Beaconhills College teacher Scott Wallace has earned the title of Casey YMCA Community Father of the Year.
Mr Wallace’s children submitted a heart-warming entry about their dad, praising his cooking skills and love and care for his 12-year-old son Cody, who was diagnosed with a rare brain tumour and hydrocephalus (excess fluid on the brain) 10 years ago. He has since undergone nine brain surgeries and has a number of other conditions. The family is now trying to raise funds for a seizure alert dog to help in Cody’s care.
The award submission submitted on behalf of Cody about his dad said: “He takes care of me when I am sick and have to go to hospital.
“He makes sure I take all my daily medicines and says to me all the time ‘If I could take away your pain I would in a heartbeat’.”
Mr Wallace, who is Head of IT and Head of Rich House at the College’s Pakenham Campus, said he was humbled and surprised to learn of the award.
“You don’t think you do anything differently to anyone else,” he said. “From the age of six, I always wanted to be a teacher – and a dad!”
