Year 9 Humanities Excursion

WW1 Centenary Exhibition and Melbourne Shrine of Remembrance

On the 12th of August the Year 9 cohort went on excursion to the Shrine of Remembrance and the WW1 Centenary Exhibition at the Melbourne Museum.  At the exhibition we saw lots of weapons, machinery, uniforms and real life artefacts that were used in the War.  There were some diary entries written by Australian soldiers in the First World War.  They gave us a really good insight into how devastating the war really was and how so many of the men and their families suffered for so long. The Shrine of Remembrance was so mesmerising and really pays tribute to our soldiers.  We learnt lots of interesting and new things.  At the end of our tour each student got to leave a poppy in the Shrine as a sign of respect.  Overall the excursion was really interesting and was thoroughly enjoyed by all.  After leaving we could really appreciate and be proud of the soldiers who fought for our country.
