Alongside the planting of their Gallipoli Oak seedling, Bethanga Primary School will unveiled a hand-made sculpture created by the students. The artwork will include over 80 glazed and painted ceramic poppies wrapped around wooden sleepers.
From the Border Mail, 26 April 2016:
Rutherglen Primary School will commemorate former principal and WWI veteran Charles Denehy with a proposed garden to be planted around their Gallipoli Oak seedling. The students wish to imbue the garden with personal meaning and significance by dedicating the garden in this way. Students Jaimee Gaston, Emma Hughes, Tilly Pinn, Mikayla Arnold, Damien Thorp, Mietta Habets and Nick Dare have created a website tracing the biography of Mr. Denehy and his contribution to the war effort.
