Schools recognise ANZACs

BSHS Reflection Garden unveiled

BEERWAH State High School officially unveiled its Reflection Garden following its ANZAC Day ceremony and the garden will be a “respectful memorial to preserve Australia’s wartime heritage”.

“We believe it is important to honour all fallen heroes regardless of which uniform they wore, and to reflect upon their service and the ultimate sacrifice these brave men and women made while in the line of duty,” BSHS school captains Riley Ferguson and Lexi Appelman said.

The Reflection Garden was funded through a Department of Veteran Affairs Federal grant and in liaison with the Beerwah and District RSL branch. It was created by local sculptor, Wayne Markwort.
