What's Happening at Grammar

Vietnam nurses inspire student essay



Geraldton Grammar School student Kelsey Christoffersen hopes to become a nurse in the future years, but it’s the medical heroines of history who have caught the Year 10 student’s attention. Kelsey will soon be on her way across the country for the Honouring Australian Vietnam Veterans competition in Canberra.

The competition, organised by the National Capital Education Tourism Project and the Department of Veteran Affairs, was open to all Year 10 students for a one-off event. Kelsey’s essay detailing the work of two women of the Australian Army Nursing Corps was a standout.

With distant family having served in Vietnam, Kelsey knew some of the history. But she was more than inspired after stumbling across the stories of veteran nurses Colleen Thurgar and Patricia Ferguson.

Highlighting the extraordinary service of the veteran nurses, Kelsey said she was inspired by learning more about the roles of women in Australian war history. “I’ve learnt a lot about the roles of the soldiers in the history of Vietnam War but what really interested me was the women who served as well,” she said. “Colleen was one of the first four nurses stationed in Vietnam and I can’t imagine the pressure they must have been under. “It’s inspiring because these women were left responsible for the lives of those injured in the war. They’re now someone I’m able to look up to.”

Kelsey will join students from across in a three-day commemorative program in Canberra, Australia. Students will attend commemorations on Vietnam Veterans’ Day to mark the 50th anniversary of the Battle of Long Tan. Students will also have the opportunity to meet Vietnam veterans, with Kelsey scheduled to meet both nurses featured in her entry essay.

Head of humanities and social sciences Amy Price reassured Kelsey, who was nervous about doing the nurses’ life stories justice. “We’re all really proud of Kelsey for what she’s accomplished and I never had any doubts she’d be the girl to pull through,” she said.
