An Anzac memorial garden is being unveiled at Sunbury’s Killara Primary School today.

The school community will be joined by members of Sunbury Returned and Services League, the Women’s Royal Australian Army Corp and the Australian Women’s Army Service for the unveiling.

The memorial, which honours those who served in WWI, is the result of the hard work of three of the school’s teachers and funding from the Anzac Centenary Local Grant Program.

Teachers Sarah Round, Kelli Brogan and Robyn Smith designed, organised and helped with the painting and gardening of the memorial.

The garden features a mural that depicts the WWI Battle of Lone Pine, a bench seat, two metal soldiers standing to attention and 3D metal poppies scattered throughout the area.

Ms Smith said the school’s pupils would spend time at the garden learning about the Anzacs and their plight.

“It’s a wonderful area for students and community members to gather and pay their respects,” Ms Smith said.
