Zed, Giralang Primary, and the Rats of Tobruk

By johnboy - 9 December 2013 0

For reasons beyond all sanity Senator Zed Seselja is launching a DVD about brutal siege warfare at a Primary School today.

Senator Zed Seselja will today launch Giralang Primary School’s DVD featuring the Rats of Tobruk.

The DVD is a result of Giralang Primary winning a Department of Veterans Affairs Schools’ Grant to establish the Rats of Tobruk Memorial Wall. The ACT Rats of Tobruk Association and Giralang Primary School have had a relationship since 1999.

“I am very proud that this fantastic DVD is a result of a longstanding relationship between local veterans and local school students,” stated Senator Seselja.

Senator Seselja will attend a school assembly at Giralang Primary School this morning at 11:00am, along with members of the ACT Rats of Tobruk Association.

I’m all for commemorating the heroics of our veterans of Tobruk and I note the campaign has a rather magnificent memorial on ANZAC Parade.

I’m just not entirely sure primary schoolers are going to be able to appreciate the full context.

What’s Your opinion?
