The TSS Prep Young Archie Award for 2019 is Kyle Grassick 6H. The Year 6 cohort has undertaken a portraiture unit based on a study of human anatomy and the drawings by Leonardo Da Vinci. The Subject of these portraits was based on an admirable Australian who has contributed to the positive fabric of our culture.
