We are proud to announce that Na-Young from Year 10 has been selected as the state winner of the National History Challenge in the Democracy Matters category. Na-Young composed an essay assessing the impact of Robert Menzies’ legacy in Australia and the controversies of it during his time as Prime Minister.
She has been invited to receive her award on 3rd December at the Anzac Memorial at Hyde Park with a guest and will be sharing a brief statement at the event about what she has learned from her participation in the National History Challenge as part of the ceremony proceedings. She will be presented with a certificate, a medallion and $200 prize money.
Na-Young, alongside four other Tara entrants from Years 9 and 10, carefully drafted her submission beginning the process early this year and continued the drafting process during the lockdown period, demonstrating strong inquiry skills, organisation and independent learning. The competition theme for 2020 was ‘Contested hiStories’, inviting entrants to consider debatable and controversial topics of History and multiple interpretations of the past.
The History Department are incredibly proud of her achievement. Well done Na-Young!
