Ipswich veterans salute the city's next generation

THE Ipswich and West Moreton Branch of the National Servicemen's Association said thanks to a group of helpful high school students this week.

Nine Ipswich State High School students, including Kayla Ashcroft, Bryce Berrell, Delores Cufi, Abbie Rush, Aarron Heaney, Kerrie Butler-Graham, Teigan Hogbin, Brianna Lawrence and Jordan Lawrence, carried flags and banners for the NSA contingent during the city's Anzac Day.

Branch president Brian Hall said the students also helped prepare and pack up afterwards.

"I, and indeed members of the branch, had decided to give recognition to these students for firstly volunteering and then so willingly exercising their duties far and above what could have been expected," Mr Hall said.

The certificates of appreciation were presented during school assembly on Tuesday.

"Teenagers are sometimes denigrated as being irresponsible, but if these students are indicative of today's youth then Australia has a very bright future," Mr Hall said.
