This year marked the 50th anniversary of the end of Australia’s involvement in the Vietnam War. In order to commemorate this, The Department of Veterans’ Affairs conducted a national competition where students were required to create and implement suitable teaching resources that educated their fellow classmates on the experiences of our veterans. The students developed a multi-media presentation that also included an interview with Mr Ian Birch, Illawarra Sub-branch President of the Vietnam Veterans.
Harrison Thelan, William Hall, Ben Moroney, Ali Hadi and Michael Da Silva are to be commended for their outstanding enthusiasm and dedication as they brought to life an important part of our national heritage. Further, these boys were instrumental in promoting and delivering their presentation to all Year 10 students. As a result, they have been awarded with a Certificate of Excellence by the Hon Matt Keogh MP, Minister for Veterans’ Affairs and Minister for Defence. This is a prestigious acknowledgement of the commitment and passion these fine young men have exhibited.
