*Congratulations to the four students who have represented Australia at the International Geography Olympiad, which was held in Krakow, Poland, 12-18 August 2014:

  • Oscar Fawkes, Sydney Grammar School
  • Janice Mui, MacRobertson Girls' High School, Melbourne
  • Stephen Roche, Sydney Grammar School
  • Leon Shi, Melbourne High School

We have had an outstanding medal tally: Janice came third, Stephen received a gold medal, Oscar received a silver medal and Leon received a bronze medal. Like in other subject Olympiads, medals are given in bands, not just one of each. That means Australia has come 2nd!! Well done to all our participants for making this Olympiad a success.
