Success at the National History Challenge – October 2019

In 2019 St Monica’s students have once again performed brilliantly at the National History Challenge!

The National History Challenge is a research-based competition for Australian students from primary school to Year 12 that acknowledges quality research. The competition is managed by the History Teachers Association of Australia.

Student’s work was first judged at school level, followed by attendance at State interviews, where they were interviewed by Secondary school teachers.

The top three entries in the State are then judged against entries from all other states. From this, State and National winners are selected.

Congratulations to Jessica and Mai who have been awarded a Victorian Young Historian Silver Certificate in the 2019 National History Challenge, for their projects regarding Australian Wartime History.

We congratulate them and all our entrants for their excellent research and presentation that went into their entries.

Special thanks to Ms Maggie Catterall for the wonderful work she does every year mentoring our students during the challenge and promoting a love and deeper understanding of history.
