Spe­cial day for stu­dents

Central and North Burnett Times - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

AN­ZAC Day was rather spe­cial for Brooweena State School stu­dents as they wore badges that rep­re­sented 10 of the lo­cal servicemen who lost their lives in the First World War.

As Woocoo His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety’s Gail Gauld read the name and de­tails of each sol­dier, the stu­dent rep­re­sent­ing that sol­dier came for­ward and laid a poppy on the me­mo­rial in re­mem­brance of him.

Ms Gauld said this was an RSL Com­mu­nity Link school project and the badges could be worn again in fu­ture An­zac Day cer­e­monies.
