15 Nov Congratulations Coby Menzie

Congratulations to Coby Menzie of Year 10 who has been selected to participate in the Premier’s ANZAC Tour 2017.  Students were requested to write a 1000 word essay regarding Australia’s involvement in World War II and how this has shaped Australia’s relations with the Asia region today.  From all of the entries that were submitted 19 students were chosen to attend an interview.  This involved turning the written essay into a speech and presenting it to a panel of judges.  Judges asked students what they had learned from their experience of writing their essay and what commemoration means to them.
Students will travel to Singapore to participate in a commemorative tour of the region for ANZAC Day 2017.  There were 10 students selected from across the state.  Well done Coby!
