On Monday 10th August, Clifton SHS commemorated
the August offensive at Gallipoli Peninsula, with special recognition of the
Battle of Lone Pine 6th-10th August. Representatives from
the community attended the commemoration.
At this special parade, the school also ‘unveiled’ its
permanent tribute to the members of the Light Horse of World War 1. Year 10 Art
students produced a large work of the iconic photograph of two Light Horsemen
on their horses. Jessica Scott explained the symbolism of the colours of the
work which will be permanently mounted in the Multi-Purpose Shelter. The
Principal , Joy Craig, spoke of the significance of the relationship between
man and horse and reminded parade of the importance of their story of mateship,
courage, guts and determination.
