'A very interesting, erudite, young lady'
The new little big boss of Melbourne is Claire McDaniel.
Claire, 12, from Loreto Mandeville Hall, Toorak, won our competition that encourages students in grades five to seven (10 to 12 years of age) to learn about Melbourne history and civic duty.
Originally from San Francisco, she moved to Melbourne five years ago, and will help raise the flag on Melbourne Day and join city councillors and Lord Mayor Robert Doyle, above, on official and other fun duties during the year.
Thank you to those who entered. We thank 13CABS, our 2015 competition partner.
She appeared on the Tom Elliott radio 3AW Drive show.
"She's a very, very interesting, erudite young lady," he said, introducing the segment.
