“This is a fantastic result for Brody and we congratulate him on his success. And we also congratulate our Year 10 student Hunter Torr, who achieved excellent marks and a High Distinction in the history challenge, and a Credit in the Australian Geography Competition.”
Brody Mathews received a specially minted medallion. Darwin Middle School student Aidan Latz was named Year 7 Northern Territory champion. Registrations are open for the 2018 competition, scheduled for Wednesday 23 May.
