Port Macquarie MP Leslie Williams is currently overseas as part of the premier’s Anzac ambassador program.
Mrs Williams was a late inclusion in the group that will see her act as chaperone to six high school students.
The students were selected by a panel of judges after submitting essays on the centenary of Anzac.
Mrs Williams left with the group on October 28 and returns on November 7.
The trip includes visiting key Anzac battlegrounds.
Veterans Affairs minister David Elliott said the group had the opportunity to walk in the footsteps of our diggers and deepen their understanding of a legacy that has shaped Australia’s history.
The 10-day trip started in Greece where the students learnt how the Anzac story unfolded in Athens and Lemnos. They then walked the footsteps of soldiers on the Western Front, travelling to Villers-Bretonneux in France, Passchendaele in Belgium, and London.
ClubsNSW Director Sallianne Faulkner said the club industry was proud to help educate the next generation about the importance of our Anzac history.
“It’s one thing to learn about Australia’s history in the classroom, but it’s quite another to physically retrace our soldiers’ footsteps abroad,” Ms Faulkner said.
“This is an amazing opportunity to provide a first-hand insight into the heroism shown by our Anzacs, and I hope they take their experience back to school to share with their classmates.”
