Yr 9 History Students excursion to Kokoda Memorial Walkway

 

On Tuesday 15 November, Year 9 History went to the Kokoda Memorial Track to gain a better understanding of the veterans experiences. We were split into groups, and my group was lead by a guide called Reg, a 93 year old Kokoda veteran. Reg lead us around the track, and told us some stories about his own personal experiences that made all of us emotional. I, personally, was honoured to be able to hear a first-hand account of what happened. It was a day I won’t ever forget.
