Pimlico student wins Premier's Anzac Prize


​Isaac Mabo-Edwards is one of two Townsville students awarded the Premier’s Anzac Prize for 2018.

Eight prize winners from around Queensland, along with two teacher chaperones, will travel to London and the Western Front to visit sites important to Australian war history.  The students will also attend the historic centenary dawn service on Anzac Day at the Australian War Memorial at Villers-Bretonneux in France and be some to the first visitors to the Sir John Monash Museum that opens in 2018.

Students applying for the prize were asked to address a specific question and develop an historical argument referring to evidence of the Anzac spirit from Australia's involvement in wars and conflicts from Gallipoli through to the present day, and to relate those experiences to positive values and activities in everyday life.
Isaac is looking forward to this remarkable opportunity.

Pimlico State High School is especially proud to be involved with the Premier’s Anzac Prize and is the only school in the state to have had a student involved in the program in every year since its inception in 2013.

Congratulations Isaac!
