Teens retrace Diggers’ steps
St Marys Rugby League Club sent two Penrith school students to retrace Diggers’ steps on the Kokoda Trail. One of those students was PCS Year 11 student, Callum Meney.
Callum has also provided us with his report and thoughts about his Kokoda trip:
In late September I flew to Papua New Guinea to hike the Kokoda trail. For those of you who may not know, the trail was one of the major Australian battle fronts in WW2. Hiking the trail was undoubtedly one of the most impacting experiences of my life. Not only did it test me physically as I hiked through the harsh mountains, the stories I heard of the soldiers who fought along the trail impacted me far deeper than I expected at the beginning of the trek.
