CONGRATULATIONS


Congratulations to Daniel Docker, Year 11, who today was presented with the Simpson Prize at Parliament House in Canberra. Daniel is the WA winner of this national history competition.  Daniel was flown to Canberra to spend two days visiting  a number of national memorials, dining at the Royal Military College, Duntroon and attending the awards ceremony.  In addition Daniel will join the winners from the other states on a tour which will include London, Paris and the battle fields of the Western Front in Belgium and France.  On ANZAC Day he will attend the Dawn Service at Villers-Bretonneux.  It is an outstanding accomplishment for Daniel to receive this award and his prize promises to be the trip of a lifetime.  This year there were over 1100 entries in the  competition.   This is the second time in four years that a Holy Cross student has been the WA winner of the Simpson Prize.  In 2015 Bianca Sumich travelled to Gallipoli for the centenary of ANZAC.  In 2017 Miss Emilie Reynolds was one of two teacher prize winner and travelled as a chaperone with the Simpson Prize group to Europe.  Thanks to Miss Reynolds, for her great work with the History students and in  supporting the students in entering the Simpson Prize.
