Ros SPENCE (Kalkallo – Minister for Agriculture, Minister for Community Sport, Minister for Carers and Volunteers) (09:56): Congratulations to Mount Ridley College student Baylasan Almosa for being a recipient of the 2023 Premier’s Spirit of Anzac Prize.
This competition provides students in years 9 to 12 with an opportunity to explore Australia’s wartime and peacekeeping history and its relevance to developing our diverse and multicultural society.
As part of her application Baylasan recorded a video of herself making Anzac biscuits while reflecting on the Gallipoli campaign and discussing its significant contribution in creating Australia’s identity.
Baylasan will now have the opportunity to tour war memorials, battlefields and commemorative sites in Türkiye, including Gallipoli.
Congratulations again to Baylasan and the 11 other recipients, who have done a fantastic job in reflecting on the service and sacrifice of our veterans.
