SOUTH Coast students are being urged to enter a ballot enabling 100 high school students to represent NSW at the 2015 Gallipoli Dawn Service, marking the 100th anniversary of the landing of the first Anzacs.
The year 10, 11 and 12 students selected will travel to Turkey to be part of this historic occasion with 28 supervising teachers.
The ballot, to be held later this year, will draw 25 schools or school groups, which will then be eligible to nominate four students for the tour.
Schools can apply individually or in local groups of up to four. This
will give all schools an opportunity to take part, regardless of size or location.
Successful schools will be announced in early September. The names of the students and supervising teachers participating in the tour will be announced in December.
Expressions of interest can be submitted at the NSW Centenary of Anzac website: veterans.nsw.gov.au/centenary/gallipoli-2015-school-tour/.
