Students help collect soil for memorial
Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch met with six school leaders from Ettalong Public School on November 19 to collect a soil sample from the Woy Woy War Memorial.
They were joined by the principal, Ms Lynn Balfour and representatives from the Woy Woy Ettalong Hardys Bay RSL sub-branch.
The soil will now be sent to the new Hall of Service in Sydney's Hyde Park to represent servicemen from the Woy Woy area.
The upgrade to the Hyde Park Memorial will open next year to commemorate one hundred years since the end of World War I.
"It is a great honour that our school could be involved in this initiative that will stand for many years to come," Ms Balfour said.
