All good things come to an end and that is the case with the 2017 Premier's ANZAC Spirit School Prize.

Bronson Horan, RSL SA President presents an RSL medal to Metala Burgess for her prize entry that he had read.
At the reception the students had the opportunity to address the guests with their observations and stories from the tour and reflect on the impact of the prize on their perceptions and considered futures. The students spoke fantastically and did the parents and staff proud!
Kendal Brown (RSL SA delegate for the trip) and Brenton Meier (teacher chaperone) share their thoughts on the prize.
After the reception the students, staff and parents had the opportunity to have one last Vietnamese meal together at the Ho Tho City Restaurant in Hindmarsh - an absolute treat to finish our time together.
All smiles at a meal back in Ho Chi Minh City.
All the best to the students and staff involved in this years trip - thanks for all the memories of a great time together.
Now for planning the 2018 Premier's ANZAC Spirit School Prize that was launched on 11 November 2017. Stay tuned!
