Six young people from across NSW will have the opportunity to travel to historic battlefields in Greece and Israel as part of the 2017 Premier’s Anzac Ambassadors Program.
Students are encouraged to apply for the Premier’s Anzac Ambassadors Program for the chance to retrace the steps of the Anzacs.
The journey goes to World War I battlegrounds and is a way of deepening the students understanding of the events and contributions made by the young men and women who enlisted over a century ago.
The six successful applicants will travel to Lemnos in Greece and to Israel for the centenary of the Charge of the Fourth Light Horse Brigade at Beersheba as part of a two-week tour that is sponsored by ClubsNSW.
Interested students are asked to submit a 1000 word essay on “Why is the Centenary of Anzac important for modern Australia and what lessons are learned from the Battle of Beersheba in 1917?”
The tour will leave Sydney on October 24 and return home on November 5. Applications close Monday, July 31.
