ANZAC Spirit Study Tour

ANZAC Spirit Study Tour

Year 10 student Ava Wilmore, a winner in the 2016 Chief Minister’s ANZAC Spirit Study Award, has recently returned from a visit to Villers-Bretonneux where she attended the annual ANZAC commemoration. Ava was part of the NT delegation which placed a wreath on the Memorial. You can see the key highlights from the study tour on the ANZAC Spirit NT Facebook page.

You can see Ava’s winning video entry in the competition on YouTube.

The award promotes the importance of ANZAC Day, Australia's involvement in various conflicts since, and the importance of peacekeeping missions today. Entries for the 2017 competition are now open, student entries are required to be submitted to their schools by 12 August 2016. To find out more visit the website.

Mr Ivan Walsh from the National Servicemen’s Association of Australia was at Darwin High recently to present a Gallipoli Centenary Keepsake gift to Ava. The Gallipoli Centenary Keepsake presentation pack included replica 1904 Rising Sun hat and collar badges and ‘Australia’ shoulder titles as worn by the AIF, miniature Great War medals (WWI Trio), and a vial of actual sands collected from the landing beaches at Gallipoli. Mr Read accepted the gift on Ava’s behalf.
