Simpson Prize 2024

The 2023 Simpson Prize is now finalised with the Canberra Study Program delivered in March and the Singapore Study Program delivered in April. All the students and their teacher chaperones have now settled back into their everyday school lives.

What a wonderful start to 2023 it has been for these young leaders whom I know will be forever changed by their Simpson Prize experiences.  Here’s a powerful quote from one of this year’s SP Winners –

‘I feel privileged that I was involved in the 2023 Simpson Prize Singapore program and would highly encourage all Year 9 and 10 students to enter the competition. This experience has opened my eyes, we are not just children of Australia but we are children of the world.’

Please find attached information about the 2024 Simpson Prize. Please consider this rich learning opportunity for your students.
