Four Inner West students win national education prize

Labor Member for Grayndler Anthony Albanese today congratulated four local students whose academic achievement has earned them a 2010 Australian Student Prize.

The Australian Student Prize is awarded annually to 500 young Australians in recognition of their excellence in academic achievements, with winners nominated by state and territory education authorities.

The winners in Grayndler were:

  • William Campion of Petersham
  • James Diaz of Ashfield
  • Ellen Moore of Petersham
  • Robert Pattinson of Ashfield

“The Australian Government promotes excellence in our schools, and these local students are among the nation’s highest achievers,” Mr Albanese said.

“The Australian Student Prize is a way of recognising and rewarding these students and I congratulate them for their achievements.”

The Prize is also awarded to members of the 2010 Australian Mathematics and Science Olympiad teams who won medals in mathematics, informatics, physics, chemistry and biology.

Each Prize includes a certificate and an award of $2000 from the Australian Government.
