Victoria Cross recipient, Keith Payne VC AM and his wife veteran Florence Payne were our special invited guests at this year’s ANZAC Service held at the college. We also welcomed high level military and community representatives to join us for this event.
They were greeted at the front of the college by our student leaders, WGWLHA volunteer Derek Rea in WW1 Navy Uniform and students in replica WW1 Nurse uniforms, beside a WW1 Bell Tent façade. Our college foyer was adorned with a display dedicated to the 1023 Western Australian servicemen who died as a result of their service in the WW1 Gallipoli campaign. Each of their names and service numbers were hand written on symbolic identity discs (made by D&T), suspended from the ceiling with red ribbon as a touching tribute to their sacrifice.
