Bombing of Darwin Commemoration

Bombing of Darwin Commemoration

Wednesday 19 February 2020 marked the 78th anniversary of the bombing of Darwin. Darwin High School has a longstanding tradition of involvement with this event and this year 17 students attended the Commemoration Service at the Cenotaph.

A large crowd attended the service to honour those who died in the conflict. The re-enactment of the initial bombing raid by the Australian Defence Force provided a poignant reminder of the reality of war.

Darwin High Schools Year 11 student Farok Al-Ibrahim delivered the Ode and four of our SRC students laid a wreath on the Cenotaph on behalf of the school.

Following the service nine of our SRC members also attended the Chief Ministers Reception at Parliament House, where they volunteered their time to chaperone veterans.

We are incredibly proud of our Student Leadership group and their willingness to volunteer their time.
