A town that never forgets Australia

This special ANZAC week we are including a moving film that you may want to share with your family. The film obtained the academic label for work on the centenary of the first World War. It has been put together by a Primary school teacher and his students at Victoria School in Villers – Bretonneux France, class CM1. The film displays a deep respect and appreciation of the solidarity and link that exists between France and Australia as allies. It also commemorates the centenary of the 1st world war wherein our own government has recently funded and built the Sir John Monash Centre – where Mr Turnbull will spend his ANZAC day this year.

Villers-Bretonneux is a town that never forgets Australia and a message that our students can appreciate. The inscription in every classroom and at the entrance to the school “Noublions Jamais L’Australie” Never Forget Australia reminds the students daily to never forget the sacrifice of the soldiers who gave their lives.
