Year 11 students Ella Magner and Chontelle Harris are heading off on a trip of a lifetime when they take part in the 2019 Premier’s ANZAC Prize tour to London, France and Belgium.
The two girls will visit important memorial sites in London before heading over to France and Belgium to visit the Western Front battlefields.  They will also attend the Dawn Service at Villers-Bretonneux in France.
The Premier’s ANZAC Prize is a wonderful opportunity for students to experience the Anzac tradition firs-hand and how the Anzac legacy relates to modern Australia.
Ella will take the opportunity to lay a wreath at the Menin Gate in Belgium where her great, great uncle’s name is engraved on the memorial.
“Being able to commemorate each of these amazing service people and thank them for their sacrifice is a dream come true,” said Ella.
Chontelle said she was surprised by the amount of boys who were in the defence force at such a young age.
“It really hits home when there are people who are my age or my friend’s age, who died at war on behalf of their county.”
The annual Premier’s Anzac Prize send eight students and two teacher chaperones on the tour.  All eligible Qld high school students in Years 8 – 11 can apply for travel the following year.  Each state school or accredited non-state school may nominate up to two students.
Pimlico State High School is especially proud to be involved with the Premier’s Anzac Prize and is the only school in the state to have had a student involved in the program in every year since its inception in 2013.
