We would like to extend our congratulations to Year 11 student Iris, who has been awarded the Premier’s Anzac Memorial Scholarship 2022.

Iris will have the opportunity to embark on a two-week historical study tour in NSW, the ACT and Darwin as part of the Scholarship. This study tour will allow her to develop her knowledge and understanding of the history of Australians at war, and includes visits to significant historical sites to learn about and commemorate the service of Australian men and women in the World Wars and other conflicts.

In 2022, the PAMS study tour will visit places in Sydney, regional NSW and interstate locations.

Premier Dominic Perrottet said by partaking in this tour, successful students will further develop their knowledge and understanding of the history of Australians at war.

“I congratulate the Scholarship recipients, who are being recognised for their positive contributions to their local communities, their respect for the service and sacrifice of Australian Defence Force personnel and their passion for studying history,” Mr Perrottet said.

“Over 125 students applied for the scholarship, and the 20 successful applicants come from places across Sydney and regional NSW, including Armidale, Bathurst, Young and Jindabyne.”
