Joshua Crow is a boarding student at Scots PGC who takes every chance to be involved with opportunities at school.

Joshua’s long list of achievements can be found proudly embroidered on his school blazer pocket. He said he believes all great leaders should have the common goal of enriching their community and actively giving back. It was through this dedication and mindset that Joshua earned the title of Queensland’s Top Geography Student in Year 11, by competing in the annual Australian Geography Competition.

Assessing secondary school students’ geographical knowledge and skills, the Australian Geography Competition was contested by more than 72,000 geography students from all over the nation. The Australian Geography Competition for secondary schools has been running since 1995. Joshua’s results have won him a fully paid place at Geography’s Big
Week Out at Kangaroo Island in South Australia later this year. At Geography’s Big Week Out, he and other top geography students from across Australia will learn new geography skills in fieldwork, spatial technologies and analytical work. These new skills will be developed over six days through experiencing real world situations.

At Geography’s Big Week Out, Joshua and other high achieving geography students will be in competition for the opportunity for placement on a team representing Australia at the International Geography Olympiad. This international competition will be held in Istanbul, Turkey next year. In addition to Joshua’s geography studies, he also enjoys his Ancient History and Drama subjects.
