Ampol names Australia’s best all-rounder student

Devonport student Aaliah Dennison has been named as the inaugural winner of Ampol’s Best All Rounder Award program.

While it is the 37th year that Ampol has run its Best All Rounder Award program, it is the first they have awarded additional prizes to recognise one best all-rounder in each state and one overall student as Australia’s best.

Matt Halliday, Managing Director and CEO of Ampol, said the Best All Rounder Award is their longest ongoing community program and forms part of their commitment to supporting communities across the country.

“We are proud to be able to recognise the outstanding achievement of all our winners, in particular our first ever national winner, Aaliah Dennison. Everyone at Ampol wishes to congratulate Aaliah for this well-deserved recognition.”

Dennison, a student at Devonport’s Don College in Tasmania, is a 2021 Latrobe Council Young Citizen of the Year and an accomplished national competitor in gymnastics with an anticipation of finishing in the top 10 per cent nationally in her upcoming HSC exams.

Not only that, but Dennison is a budding Australian Rules Football umpire and was recently selected in the AFL’s Women in Umpiring National Mentorship Program and National Indigenous Kickstart Programs.

John Thompson, Principal at Don College, said the award was deserved recognition of Dennison’s achievements.

“Aaliah is willing to grab every opportunity and challenge herself in all of her arts, sport, cultural activities and academic pursuits, all of which she has excelled at a local, state and national level.”

Dennison has won a laptop, a $5000 cash grant, and a $1000 AmpolCash gift card, in addition to a $5000 grant for Don College.
