As part of the 100 year anniversary of the ANZAC landing at Gallipoli all Year 9 students and Year 12 History students had the experience of watching an informative session and re-enactment of aspects of Australia's involvement in World War I. The performance was part of the Journey of Remembrance an initiative of the Victorian Government to teach our local communities about Victorian involvement in the Great War.
The session went for 60 minutes and students listened to explanations about what happened, before watching short re-enactments from two talented actors. President of the Kilmore RSL Tony Hansergill also spoke to the students about what being an ANZAC meant to him. At the conclusion of the performance students could try their hand at playing the bugle and to ask questions of our guests. The students were very engaged in the performance and learnt a lot beyond the textbook.
