News  » MHS welcomes The Sapphires

Last updated 1:40 PM on 29 August 2017

Two wonderful members of The Sapphires sister's Beverly Griggs and Laurel Robinson, visited our English and History students. They recalled their experiences living on a mission, performing for the troops in Vietnam, not even know where Vietnam was, and finding themselves in the middle of a war zone. The women spoke openly about their life in rural Australia, their dreams and hopes, work and future plans. 

Our students asked many questions as the information linked with their study of the film in English, and their study of The Stolen Generation and the Vietnam War examined by the same students in History.  

We all felt a heartfelt connection with Beverly and Laurel and are grateful for their time.
