St Ignatius College unveiled a new Slouch Hat sculpture at its recent Anzac Day ceremony.
The sculpture of a slouch hat was unveiled at the Anzac Garden by student leaders Dean O’Brien and Bethany Johnstone (Justice captain).
The slouch hat sculpture was created by Craig Eury of Jamieson, Victoria. He made it especially for Saint Ignatius College so it could be part of the school’s Anzac garden.
Craig has extensive experience in a wide range of building and bush-art skills. He used traditional blacksmith techniques to make the hat. The installation represents the Digger, back at camp at the end of the day, hanging his/her hat on a fence post.
The college assembled for a special Anzac ceremony on 24 April.
Proud cadets Gregory Lewis (college captain), Rhys Lowther (Liturgy captain) and Samuel Occhipinti (Year 8 Rubio Ignatian leader) made up the catafalque party and flag bearers. Wreath bearers were VCE students Jacqueline Harwood and William McCann. The Last Post and Rouse were played on trumpet by Isabelle Searle (class of 2016), while Kelsey Notting (college captain) and Dean O’Brien (college vice-captain) led in prayer and teacher Ms Marina Brown sang We Are Australian.
