James Manoussakis to Join 2015 ANZAC Day Gallipoli Tour

News date: 

Marymede Catholic College proudly congratulates James Manoussakis (Year 8) on his recent outstanding achievement in being announced as 1 of only 80 Victorian students to represent Victoria at the 2015 Anzac Day Dawn Service at Gallipoli.

James will now visit Gallipoli and Istanbul to visit battle sites and sacred memorial areas on April 21st, 2015.

With more than 630 students applying for positions, James was required to submit his application form along with detailed answers to four questions regarding what the ANZAC Spirit means to him, and the significance of the Gallipoli campaign.

The Year 8 student now follows in the footsteps of his older brother Michael (Year 11), who earlier this year was 1 of only 6 students to be awarded the prestigious Spirit of ANZAC Award.

James is extremely excited about his upcoming trip, claiming “It will be an absolute honour to visit the battlefields and be a part of the ceremony.”

Congratulations James.
