STUDENTS in Darch created 1000 poppies as part of an art installation to commemorate Anzac Day.

The elaborate artwork was unveiled at Kingsway Christian College during its annual Anzac service.

Primary and secondary students spent six weeks making the ceramic poppies, which were then mounted on to wire.

The service also included an original poetry reading, choir performances and Reveille played by Lance Corporal David Scott.

Guests included veterans, local RSL members, Vose Seminary lecturer Dr Peter Christofides and State and Federal politicians.

Principal Peter Burton said it was an important event for the school.

“Students looking into the eyes of war veterans while listening to their stories first-hand provides such a rich experience, which creates an appreciation and understanding far greater than any textbook can offer,” he said.
