On Tuesday, 29th May, Year 9 and Year 10 History students enjoyed two powerful performances from a one man company, The Troubadour Theatre.
The first performance to the Year 9 students related to the issues surrounding Australia's involvement in the Great War.
The performance and the music were both entertaining and educational and the students came away with a clearer understanding of why Australia went to war in 1914 and the results of that decision.
The performance for the Year 10 students was very different and was a piece of "real history" as the Redgum song "Only Nineteen" was explained, narrated and played by Brett Hunt who was the son of Francis Hunt who was 'Frankie" as in "Frankie kicked a land mine the day that mankind kicked the moon". This was a very moving experience for the students and especially for the teachers.
As an anti-war protester of the 1960s it was an amazing experience to hear Frankie's son sing the iconic Aussie Vietnam healing song in the Kemmis Building. A truly memorable experience for everyone there.
