Territory students get opportunities to explore Australia’s military history

Fifteen Territory students are set to embark on a trip of a lifetime as part of the 2018 Chief Minister’s Anzac Spirit study tour.

The students and four chaperones will visit France for a tour of World War One battlefields and also attend the Anzac Day commemorations in Villers-Bretonneux, France.

General Manager for Northern Australia Development and Trade, Luke Bowen said the study tour promotes the importance of Anzac Day, Australia's involvement in various conflicts since, and the importance of peacekeeping missions today.

Territory students will also get an opportunity to learn about the important shared military history between the Northern Territory and United States of America, with the Chief Ministers Peace in the Pacific study tour officially launched.
