Our CQ Father of The Year

NATHAN Woods has been named Gladstone’s CQ Father of The Year in a ceremony held at Gladstone State High School yesterday.

Nathan and his wife Janine have five children between the ages of 10 months and six years and four of the children are foster children.

Nathan said he found the award pretty overwhelming.

“I find it hard to believe, it’s very rewarding being a parent and a lot of hard work,” he said.

“I have a great wife, great family and a great support network.”

“I love to see the kids reach milestones and see them grow.”

Nathan was nominated for the award by Gladstone State High School Chaplaincy Committee.

The Queensland Father of the Year Award which is run by Scripture Union QLD is designed to honour and celebrate the importance of fathers and father-figures throughout our state and its local communities.

Nathan and his family will fly to the Gold Coast next week to attend the announcement of the Queensland winner on Thursday.
