Member for Currumbin, Jann Stuckey MP, has praised local schools for their enthusiastic support of the 2010 ANZAC Day Essay Competition.

“The quality, not to mention the quantity, of the essays this year were of the highest standard to date and I congratulate the winners for their tremendous efforts,” said Ms Stuckey.

Essays by Elanora Primary School students Brooke Lewis and Ned Humphreys were selected from hundreds of entries.

They were awarded certificates from Ms Stuckey at a school ceremony on Wednesday.

“I would like to personally thank all entrants for their thoughtful essays that captured the ANZAC spirit, and the hearts of RSL judges.

“It has now become something of a tradition for the winners to recite their essays at ANZAC Day ceremonies held at Currumbin.

“Ned recited his essay beautifully at the Dawn Service at Elephant Rock and Brooke’s reading at the RSL was greatly appreciated by all who attended, young and old.

“I am so pleased with the number of students from our local schools who took part in the competition this year.

“It really proves the ANZAC spirit holds a very special place in Currumbin.
