Students have the chance to travel overseas as part of the 2019 Premier’s Anzac Student Tour.
The Premier’s Anzac Student Tour invites 10 students to become ambassadors and represent Western Australia on a commemorative study tour overseas.
In 2019, the Premier’s Anzac Student Tour will travel to Vietnam to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Battle of Binh Ba. Between 1962 and 1972 almost 60 000 Australians served in the Vietnam War; 521 died and over 3000 were wounded. Students will visit important historical sites including Hoi An, Vung Tau and Long Tan, before attending Anzac Day commemorations in Hanoi.
Students completed a selection process which included a written response about the development of Anzac Day as a significant commemorative event. Students selected to proceed to the next phase of the competition are interviewed by a panel. A small group of students will then be selected to participate in the tour.
Selected students help continue the Anzac tradition once they return to their schools and communities. The tour is part of the commitment by schools to enshrine Anzac Day as a day of importance to all students.
