Essay Competition

 In 2013, the senior high school essay competition which was a tradition of the Athenaeum for many years, was revived.  The entries were of a high standard and judged by Prof. Tom Brooking from the history department at the University of Otago.  

First prize was awarded to Liam Taylor from King's High School for his essay on well known Dunedin potter, Airini Taylor.

 The two runners-up were Charlie Hilton and Helen Prime, both from Logan Park High School.
