Jeremy Last, Justin Wilkey: Walking Kokoda

Posted on: Mon 4 Feb 2019

Justin Wilkey’s job is to mentor Indigenous students across the state for the SA Independent Schools Association, including Jeremy Last from Torrens Valley Christian School. That step led to them joining in a Reconciliation SA event to walk the Kokoda Track. Jeremy was pretty happy to get the chance to go, since his great grandfather fought in New Guinea during WW2. As part of the experience Justin and Jeremy also met Les Arnel, a Kokoda veteran from SA whose best mate died there when they were only in their teens.
