Peace in the Pacific Tour
Darwin High School Year 10 student Vedant Surjan has been selected for the 2019 Chief Ministers' Peace in the Pacific Tour.
Vedant is just one of three NT students from Year 10 or 11 to travel to Hawaii as part of the Chief Minister’s Peace in the Pacific Study Tour next month. will Students will explore the shared military history of the Northern Territory and the state of Hawaii, and attend the National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day commemorations on 7 December.
The study tour will visit important military sites in Hawaii to get an understanding of the mutual experience and sacrifice of the people in the NT and Hawaii from their involvement in the bombing of Darwin and Pearl Harbour, and the ongoing importance of peacekeeping missions today.
