Centenary of ANZAC European Tour

On 10th to 26th April this year a group of 23 students from Gymea Technology High School will set out on a journey of a lifetime. They will explore the sights of London, Bruge and Paris, visiting historical landmarks and world-class museums.

As well as time spent in the major cities of London and Paris, the group has engaged a local historian who will escort them for five days through the World War One battlefields of Belgium and Northern France. This section of the tour is most significant, particularly as 2015 marks 100 years since the Gallipoli campaign.  Students will experience first hand the stories and sacrifice of Australian men who joined the campaigns of the Great War. This journey will take them through the sacred grounds surrounding Ypres and Amiens, where they will acknowledge fallen Australian soldiers who lie on foreign soil. Of particular honour, will be the opportunity for the group to stand at the Menin Gate, as the sun sets on the evening of 15th April. At this moment, and with the sounding of the Last Post, they will pay their respects to our countrymen who never came home.

Please stay posted next month when the group will report their experiences upon their return from this most symbolic tour.
