Leila Rankine Award for Excellence in SACE Stage 2 Aboriginal Studies

Each year HASS SA presents an award to the highest achieving student in SACE Aboriginal Studies as well as a certificate to their teacher for excellence in teaching. The award is presented at the annual HASS SA conference when the student is invited to make a short speech. 2018 was the first year that the award was achieved by an Aboriginal student.
