Ken Duthie, a local Vietnam Vet, visited our school before Anzac Day to talk to all students and share his display of uniforms and memorabilia gathered over many years.

Ken's message to students was that they are the future. They are the ones who need to be citizens of understanding and peace.

Students had the opportunity to try on uniforms from all of the armed services and many conflicts.
The Advertiser visited our school and wrote an article about Ken and his work, showing photos of our students with Ken.

.... and then came Phoebe to take up residence in the library!!
Tsam and Carey made her from wire, cornice cement and feathers of many kinds.
The big question -- How many feathers on Phoebe??
Every student could have a guess~
