Congratulations to Year 12 student Lachlan Madden who has been awarded an Australian Defence Force Academy (ADFA) Scholarship.

Lachlan is following in the footsteps of his Old Guildfordian father Craig (Wb 82-86), who also received the scholarship when he was in Year 12, entering ADFA in 1987.
Lachlan was presented with an iPad Pro and a Certificate at this morning's assembly and the School was presented with a framed plaque to commemorate the achievement. Lachlan will be entering Army Officer Training on 29 January 2019.
