Humanities Enrichment – Australian Geography

The Australian Geography Competition is a contest for Australian Secondary School students, assessing their geographical knowledge and skills. The competition aims to encourage student interest in geography and to reward student excellence.

This year Whitefriars College provided the opportunity for students in Year 7, 8 and 9 to compete in this competition. The students completed a series of multiple-choice questions testing geographical understanding. The answer sheets were centrally marked and all participants received results. I am pleased to announce that our boys did extremely well. Several boys achieved high distinctions, distinction and credits – a fantastic effort

I would like to commend the following students on their performance and acknowledge Ms Nicky Contogouris for her organization and coordination of the event. These students below will also be formally acknowledged in house assemblies later in the term.
