Loreto Nedlands leaders visit Australian War Memorial

24 March 2023

Year Six students from Loreto Nedlands visited the Australian War Memorial as part of their annual Leadership camp to Canberra last week.

As part of the visit the students got the opportunity to attend the Last Post Ceremony, which takes place at 4.45pm to conclude each and every day at the memorial.

The students were extremely honoured to represent their school during such a solemn and respectful ceremony. With connections to the armed forces within many students’ families, it is an important connection to our Australian culture, tradition, and community.

Student leaders, Grace Ligovich and Ashwell Lee were invited to lay a wreath on behalf of the school during the ceremony. Each ceremony shares the story behind one of the 103,000 names on the Roll of Honour, which last Thursday 16th March was Lieutenant Roy Cumestree Trout.

Grace said:

‘We were able to write on a little card which was put on the wreath from Loreto Nedlands. We wrote rest in peace and thank you for your service. Laying the wreath was a little nerve-wracking but a really enjoyable experience.’
