Thank you to the Vietnam Veterans who donated, on behalf of the family of Bernard Vengalia, a saxophone to Banksia Beach State School. Before his death Mr Vengalia made it known to the Vietnam Vets that it was his wish for an instrument to be donated to the school. Mr Vengalia served in the Australian Army from 1962 until his discharge as a Warrant Officer in 1985.
Mr Jock Young, Secretary of the Vietnam Veterans' Association recently presented the instrument to the school of behalf of Mr Vengalia's family. Thomas Orszulak has the honour of being the first student to use the instrument.
