Kasey Morgan and Patrick McPherson – Parkes East Public School Captains:
Patrick: It meant a lot to me having the opportunity to talk about people who came before us and did a lot for our country.
Kasey: It was an opportunity to honour the people who fought for our country.
Charlie Denham-Jones and Amanda Lowe – Parkes High School Captains:
Charlie: It was an honour to talk on behalf of the modern youth and to address what we’ve learned at school and tell the veterans that we are in awe of their medals.
Amanda: It was a great opportunity to speak and to see the whole of Parkes join together again after a long period of isolation. I felt very honoured to have shared the platform with Major General Paul Stevens, AO (retired).
