It was my great pleasure to host students from Alkira Secondary College and war veterans for a morning tea at Parliament House last week.

As part of a Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning project called ‘Following in their Footsteps’, 29 students from Alkira Secondary College researched and wrote the biographies of 22 war veterans.

The passion and care shown by the students throughout this process was inspiring and they deserve to be congratulated for all their hard work. There is little doubt that the ANZAC spirit lives on in our community!
