Federal Member for Berowra the Hon. Philip Ruddock MP joined Arcadia Public School at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra to lay a wreath at the tomb of the Unknown Soldier. During the visit they were fortunate enough to have the Director of the War Memorial Dr Brendan Nelson address students, teachers and parents about the importance of the memorial and what exactly they are commemorating.

“I think the students were most taken aback about the fact that at their ages of 11 and 12, there were soldiers only 2 years older that lost their lives to defend the freedoms we enjoy today” Mr Ruddock said.
