Diggers honoured

FORMER Warwick Central State School students, parents, teachers and community members gathered at the school for the unveiling of their Second World War honour board during the school Remembrance Day Service yesterday.

The board contains the names of past school students who fought in the Second World War but, sadly, never made the journey home.

Principal Chris Dolley said it was good to see the project finally finished.

"Brian Miller, who is a cleaner here and a Vietnam veteran put the idea to me in 2010," she said.

Mr Miller said it was nice to finally have some recognition at the school for all the boys who left and did not return home.

There were several former soldiers in attendance, most of which had attended Central State School.

Among them was Battle of Milne Bay Veteran Edgar McCulloch, who was a student and former president of the school P&C.

Students were intrigued by the soldier's medals and stories.

"For me, Remembrance Day is sharing the memories, journeys and stories of people who have shared the same mistakes and the same successes while fighting for Australia," school captain Tess King said.
