Gallipoli at Holy Trinity

Gallipoli at Holy Trinity2

 

Our Gallipoli tour students were delighted to be invited to share their experiences with the Stage 3 students at Holy Trinity Primary School recently.

Beverley Kaviya and Divashna Kumar presented first hand accounts of their recent trip to Turkey. Their stories included their ferry journeys across the straits of the Dardenelles, walks along the beach where the soldiers landed, reverent moments in the cemeteries, steep hikes up the cliffs and curious reflection as they stood in the original soldiers' trenches.

They also recounted the privilege of singing the national anthem with 10,000 others at the Dawn Service. The students from Holy Trinity listened very attentively and posed many insightful questions, including the impact that the tour had on our students and the cultural differences our students noticed in Turkey. Holy Trinity students were encouraged to pursue all the opportunities offered to them, such as Beverley and Divashna did.

Our Gallipoli students have been invited to morning tea with the Premier of NSW and gratefully accept invitations to share their stories which bring other perspectives of an Australian student learning the importance of  remembering World War One.

The Anzac spirit has certainly been fuelled in our community and we trust that this will continue.
