REGION – Investigator College Year 9 students Alicia Crowhurst and Jasmin Grist are the winners of the 2017 Premiers Anzac Spirit School Prize, a state government-sponsored Study Tour to Vietnam in October 2017.
The competition provides an opportunity for young South Australians to examine and empathise with the remarkable sacrifices of Australian service men and women in the Great War of 1914-18.
Alicia and Jasmin submitted outstanding written pieces on their chosen service personnel from the Great War.
Alicia chose a local nurse, Jessie Emily Wakefield and Jasmin chose her great grandfather, Arthur Fillis Grist.
Both honoured the memory of these heroes of the Great War in their entries and the college is extremely proud of their efforts.
Investigator College history teacher Jodie O’Donnell said she witnessed the incredible amount of work both girls put into their entries first hand.
“The students thoroughly deserved the win and they will be wonderful ambassadors for our College and their wider community,” Ms O’Donnell said.
“Congratulations Alicia and Jasmin”.
