CONGRATULATIONS TO ZACK STEPHENS, YEAR 11
During Term 2, The Greek Herald, a national newspaper, launched a competition commemorating the 2500-year anniversary of the Battle of Thermopylae in 480 BC. The competition required students from all over Australia to submit any piece of writing or artwork, which were selected by the team at The Greek Herald and then passed on to a special panel of judges.
Year 11 student, Zack Stephens, was the Runner-Up for the Battle of Thermopylae 2500 Year Anniversary Competition in the Senior Category, submitting a fascinating piece of poetry. Zack studied Ancient History last semester and saw the competition as an opportunity to develop and further his skills on the Battle of Thermopylae.
Zack said “The Battle of Thermopylae is an example of persistence and how against all odds, victory is achievable. I am grateful and completely surprised to be selected as a finalist in my category in the whole of Australia”.
We congratulate Zack for this tremendous effort. To read Zach’s poem, please click the link: https://greekherald.com.au/the-battle-of-thermopylae-poem/
