Students hand out rosemary in honour of Remembrance Day

A group of dedicated IGS Year 9 students handed out rosemary sprigs at the front gates of the School this week, in honour of Remembrance Day.

Rosemary is traditionally worn on Anzac Day, and sometimes on Remembrance Day.

Rosemary has particular significance for Australians as it is found growing wild on the Gallipoli peninsula and reminds us of the sacrifices of our servicemen and women and their families in every conflict in which our Defence forces have taken part since World War I.

Since ancient times, this aromatic herb has been believed to have properties to improve memory.
