Tash takes home $10,000!

Year 12 student, Natasha Moore has been awarded a $10,000 scholarship through Teen Parliament.

A few weeks ago, we had a number of students from Naracoorte High School apply to be a part of Teen Parliament 2024. The application process involved students writing a brief proposal about how to build a brighter future for SA under one of the following categories: state development, the economy, the environment, health, education and social issues.

We were super excited to hear that Year 12 student, Tash Moore, was selected as one of the 31 Year 10 -12 students to attend Teen Parliament to voice her proposal and ideas.

On Friday March 8th, Tash was flown to Adelaide to attend Teen Parliament in the House of Assembly at Parliament House. The students were addressed by Premier Peter Malinauskas and were then given time to each present their proposals, addressing people with the formalities used in parliament. To see Tash in action head to our facebook page and follow the video link (Tash is towards the end of the video).

Upon return, we were thrilled with the news that Tash was one of the ten students selected from Teen Parliament to receive a $10,000 scholarship to put towards her future education! She accepted this scholarship on Friday, 15th of March at the Building a Better, Bigger South Australia event held at SkyCity Adelaide. 

Well done Tash – what an amazing opportunity. You represented Naracoorte High School superbly!!

See what Tash had to say about her experience below…

On Friday 8th March, I had the opportunity to attend the 2024 Teen Parliament competition, and it was an experience that I will never forget. I spoke about how the grading system needs to change so students are not seen just by their grades. This was a huge achievement for me, as I had never done anything like this before. Attending the competition was an incredible experience, and all the participants had amazing ideas that could make South Australia a better place. I am grateful to everyone who supported me during this journey, and it has truly changed my future after school.  – Tash Moore
