WWI Commemoration Open Day


As part of our efforts to commemorate the centenary of World War I, Sunnybank State High School is exhibiting artworks and artefacts in the school library on Thursday 23 April 2015.

The exhibition has a primary focus of the first six months of the war and shows information on the causes of the war, recruitment, enlistment, training in Egypt and internment of German Australians. Student artwork will be on display and visitors will be able to have their photo taken with our life-size models of Australian, New Zealand, British and Turkish soldiers, as well as a model of Simpson’s donkey.

 A video documenting what Australia, Queensland, Brisbane and Sunnybank looked like in 1914 will be shown, as well as others relevant to the war.

We will be open from 2.00 pm to 7.00 pm, with the Lions Club providing a sausage sizzle (for nominal cost), Red Cross, a handicraft stall. Our principal, Ms Tracey Cook, will welcome visitors and give a brief description of the commemoration project at the school over the next four years.​
