School gets Federal funding for memorial garden

The school had already started works on the garden when Hasluck MHR Ken Wyatt announced the funding at a recent school assembly. The Australian Government�s Anzac Centenary Local Grants Program enabled communities to support commemorations by carrying out projects honouring the service and sacrifice of Australians during World War I.

�Huntingdale Primary School will use the funds to create a memorial garden for not only the students, but for the local community,� Mr Wyatt said.

�All Australians, no matter where they live, must be given the opportunity to commemorate the centenary of Anzac, but also the chance to understand where we fought, why we fought and the reasons and values we fought for. This grant will complement the wider series of commemorative activities that have been developed throughout Hasluck and I look forward to seeing the project take shape.�
