Can you dig it?

St Paul's WW1 Trench project

Be involved, Be Active and the St Paul's Community will remember them.

This year commemorates the 100 year anniversary of Gallipoli and the St Paul's Community is building our own WW1 Trench. The aim is to make this a learning space that takes the experiences of WW1 outside the History classroom and opens them up to our community as a whole. We invite all members of the St Paul's Community to be involved.

Trench Building Day (session 1) - Complete

Sunday, May 3rd, 9am

This is a call to arms - digging and hammering arms that is. On the 3rd of May the SPS Trench Project is going to begin construction. We have duck boarding to build, frame work to construct, sandbagging and that's just the start. We are after helpers of any age and interest who would like to be involved. Also if you are able to donate building materials that could be used in our construction, we would be very grateful. If this is you please contact Kerry Daud at

The SPS Trench Project

The SPS Trench project is a combination of staff and students who are inspired by the courage and resourcefulness of our ANZAC's. The project's objective is to create a learning space that brings these traits into a range of educational settings: engineering, maths, science, english and more. In essence to free it from the historical sphere and make it accessible to all within our community.
