Last year, Year 12 Legal Studies students were put forward for the Governor’s Civics Awards for Schools. Our awardees were invited to a reception at Government House on Friday 15th February where they participated in a round-table discussion with Her Excellency the Honourable Frances Adamson, Governor of South Australia.

These awards provide the opportunity for young South Australians to develop their capacity and awareness in the area of active and informed citizenship in a multicultural and democratic society. The awards aim to highlight the importance of civics education in the South Australian historical context and be a conduit for quality student engagement and learning in these areas.

Megan Adrain (award winner) – her Inquiry focussed on the Australian Government’s duty of care to combat environmental issues in order to protect the future of humanity.

Grace Cavallaro (award winner) – investigated the extent to which the government is effectively addressing Australia’s teacher crisis and protecting the education system.

Benjamin Ryan – (merit) researched specific environmental legislation and uncovered whether such Acts promote environmental protection and conservation.

We congratulate these students and wish them every success as they begin their tertiary studies this week.
