Federal Member for Hasluck, Ken Wyatt MP, today congratulated Kelsi Brennan from Guildford Grammar School for her success in the National History Challenge.

Mr Wyatt said Kelsi Brennan was awarded WA Young Historian for the Year Level 5-6 category in the nationwide competition that involved more than 6,500 students from more than 600 schools.

“I’d like to say a massive congratulations to every student in Hasluck who took part in the National History Challenge,” Mr Wyatt said.

“The high quality of the entries is a tribute to the students, but also to the teachers and parents in Hasluck who inspire and encourage them to explore their love of history.

“As a society we must study and learn the lessons from history, and the contribution made by the budding historians in our community give me confidence that will continue.

“A special congratulations to Kelsi Brennan for her project on ‘Edict of Milan’, a letter signed by the Roman emperors Constantine and Licinius that proclaimed religious toleration in the Roman Empire.”

The Morrison Government is providing $396,000 over three years for the National History Challenge. For more information visit historychallenge.org.au/
