Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith joined history students at Jamison High School to announce that the school has been selected via a ballot to participate in the 2019 Premier’s Anzac Memorial Scholarship.

A lucky student from Jamison High school will take part in a once in a lifetime tour of key WWI and WWII battlegrounds as part of the 2019 program.

Stuart Ayres said it was a sensational opportunity for Jamison High School to select a student to represent the community and gain a better understanding of the military service and the causes of war.

“The successful student will have a remarkable educational opportunity to walk in the footsteps of Australian servicemen and women and enhance their understanding of a legacy that has shaped Australia’s military story.”

“I encourage Jamison High School students in Year 9 and 10 with a keen interest in history to apply,” Stuart Ayres said. “I look forward to meeting the schools scholar when successful applicants are announced in 2019.”

Students interested in attending the tour will submit a piece of work on the topic Australians at War, which will be judged by a panel selected by the school. Essays, poems or short stories, video presentations and musical compositions are just some of the formats applications can be submitted in. 

The 2019 tour will travel to historic sites and battlegrounds in Germany, France and Belgium. They will deepen their understanding of the causes of war and commemorate the service of Australians in both the First and Second World Wars.

Minister for Veterans Affairs, Mr David Elliott said educating younger generations on those who answered the call for service was imperative as NSW marks the Centenary of Service.

“This is a unique opportunity and one that offers students insight into Australia’s involvement in two of the most devastating conflicts we have ever seen,” Mr Elliott said.
