YOUR STORY: Anzac coins for kids at Maryborough State High
More than 160 students and 30 staff donned their proud blue and brown uniforms on ANZAC Day to commemorate the centenary service for the first ANZAC Commemoration in 1916.
The links to the school and the 47th Battalion are strong.
The school colours originated from the ANZACs and the pride of the current generation of students has not diminished, with the largest contingent of any school in the Marybrorough march on Monday.
Numbers for the school were significantly up in 2016, with each student receiving a commemorative coin, which was struck with the 100th Anniversary of the 47th Battalion in the Western Front and the Maryborough SHS crest.
With a limited edition of only 250, the coveted coins will be a prized possession for those students who marched and will serve as a reminder for their role in the march, as well as the strong traditions of their school.
The school looks forward to the future, but is proud of keeping its strong links to the past.
