Remembrance Day Chapel

For the Centenary of Armistice, we were privileged to have Bob Elworthy AM (President of the Victorian Branch of the Vietnam Veterans Association of Australia) give the address at the Remembrance Day Chapel. He spoke of honouring the dead while still fighting for the living. He encouraged everyone to reach out and touch a name engraved on a memorial – to think of that individual as someone who loved and was loved, and was perhaps even one of the 117 BGS students who did not return from the Great War. Bob also asked that we take some time from our busy lives to reflect on the sacrifices made and then to honour these by throwing ourselves into life with enthusiasm. Lest we forget.
