Students salute big flag
A FLAG the size of a double-decker bus was unrolled at Ipswich Central State School for National Flag Day yesterday.
On the 111th anniversary of the first time the Australian flag was hung on
September 3, 1901 at the Royal Exhibition Building, Melbourne, the school's students took part in a cry of Aussie, Aussie, Aussie and held a moment's silence for the Australian soldiers who died in Afghanistan last week.
Yesterday is the second time this flag, which hung over Parliament House in Canberra on the design's 100th birthday, has visited Ipswich Central.
