Anzac study tour students named
4 December 2014
A teacher whose grandfather served as a light horseman at Gallipoli and the great granddaughter of Alec Campbell, Australia's last Anzac are among the 100 students and 28 teachers who will represent NSW at the Anzac Day Dawn Service at Gallipoli next year.
Four students from 25 schools balloted earlier in the year were chosen by a competitive local selection process.
They produced websites, artworks, poems and research papers focused on the experiences of our nation's servicemen and servicewomen during the First World War.
Announcing the chosen students, the Minister for Veterans Affairs, Victor Dominello, praised the calibre of those selected and the high standard of work they produced.
As well as attending the dawn service and Centenary of Anzac celebrations, the group will visit historical sites and First World War battlefields in Turkey.
Public schools from Carlingford, Cronulla, Griffith, Horningsea Park, Inverell, Lisarow, Lucas Heights, Miranda, Mona Vale, North Rocks, Orange, Raymond Terrace, Swansea and Tullamore were balloted to nominate students to be selected for the tour.
