(L-r) National History Challenge finalists Sophie F, Tia N, Ciaran Q and Marcus G with teacher Lyndall Fokkens centre.
Four Year 6 students made it through to the Victorian finals of the National History Challenge on Sunday 9 September.
With 25 finalists in Year 6 from across Victoria, Beaconhills’ Berwick Campus represented almost one fifth of the best results in the State.
The National History Challenge is a research-based competition which gives students the chance to be an historian and explore their past. Students submit an 800 word essay on a leader of their choice.
Tia N wrote an essay on Indian independence leader Mahatma Gandhi, Sophie F on civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jnr, Marcus G covered African American baseball star Jackie Robinson while Ciaran Q wrote about early Australian explorer Edward John Eyre.
Tia N said the competition was challenging and memorable.
“It was a great event that improved my writing, but mostly I was able to build on my research skills and add to my original foundations,” she said.
Individual Programs teacher Lyndall Fokkens said it was an outstanding result by the students.
