Students learn of the ANZAC spirit

THE plight of the ANZACs came alive at Bendigo South East College through historic videos, reenactments and guest speakers earlier this month.

Anzac Centenary - Victoria's Journey of Remembrance, a community roadshow that is touring the state, visited the school on August 15.

The show was created to inspire students to create Centenary projects and learn about WWI history.

Veteran Affairs Minister Damian Drum visited the school to commemorate the roadshow.

He said the roadshow would travel to more than 80 suburbs and towns across the state.

"It's particularly important that the Journey connects with young Victorians by exposing them to significant WWI icons, artefacts and information so they can pass on the torch of remembrance of the Anzac legacy to future generations and have a deeper respect for all veterans," he said.
