Year 10 history class guest speaker

Mr Semler kindly donated a wonderful book about the Vietnam War to our school, gratefully accepted by Year 10 History student Tim Hampton.

The Year 10 History class was pleased to recently welcome Vietnam war veteran Mr Brian Semler of Hervey Bay to talk with our class about his experiences.  He gave us a very moving presentation of both factual information and personal experiences from his time in the Vietnam War.  We found it very interesting and thought provoking to learn history through the eyes of a survivor and soldier who was actually there in the middle of the conflict. The information that Mr Semler shared with us was very valuable as we could get an understanding of how the Vietnam War had an impact on the soldiers and how in a split second things could change. His presentation has definitely helped us with our current term’s study of the war.
