DOVETON STUDENT CHOSEN FOR PREMIER’S SPIRIT OF ANZAC PRIZE STUDY TOUR
Doveton student, Jacob Eisho, will represent his region and Victoria on a study tour to learn about the service and sacrifices of our veterans.
Member for Dandenong, Gabrielle Williams, today congratulated Jacob on receiving the Premier’s Spirit of Anzac Prize.
Students were selected after submitting an entry based on one of two topics – one focussed on the experiences of young people and those on the home front and the other asked students to delve into the experiences of the Anzacs based on pieces of evidence including visual art and monuments.
Jacob is one of 20 students who will take part in a Canberra study tour during the first week of the term 2 holidays.
Accompanied by two teachers, the group will visit key sits of national significance such as Parliament House, the Museum of Australian Democracy, the National Archives of Australia and the Australian Defence Force Academy.
Entries for the 2017-18 study tour will open soon. For more details or to apply online, visit www.veterans.vic.gov.au
