Spirit of sacrifice

Narre Warren North MP Luke Donnellan, Premier’s Spirit of Anzac Award-winning student Resi Santosa and Gleneagles Secondary College principal Sue Peddlesden.

An Endeavour Hills student will trace the steps of Australia’s World War II service men and women.
Gleneagles Secondary College’s Resi Santosa will join the Premier’s Spirit of Anzac Prize three-day tour to Canberra in July.
Two teachers will take the students to sites of national significance including Parliament House, the Museum of Australian Democracy, the National Archives of Australia and the Australian War Memorial.
Narre Warren North MP Luke Donnellan said it was a wonderful opportunity for Resi to “learn about the service and sacrifice of our veterans”.
“Our community is extremely proud that Resi has been selected to represent us on this study tour and I am sure he will return with a better understanding of our wartime history to share with his classmates and our community,” he said.
The Premier’s Spirit of Anzac Prize is in its 15th year and provides a unique chance for Year 10 and 11 students to reflect upon the spirit of the Australians who fought for their country and the impact of war on society.
Entries for the next tour opened on Monday 5 February. Visit www.dpc.vic.gov.au/soap to apply.
