Kew RSL Remembrance Day Service

On 11 November, Josh was honoured to attend the Kew RSL Remembrance Day service at the Kew Cenotaph. During the moving ceremony members of the Kew RSL, the local community and representatives from all levels of government paid their respects to those Australians who died or were injured in war. 2014 marks the 96th anniversary of the Armistice which ended the First World War (1914–18). Of the 420,000 Australians who enlisted, 152,000 were wounded and 61,000 never returned. Today more than ever we remember the sacrifices of the Australian men and women who have served and the more than 102,000 Australians who have died in wars and conflicts. Lest we forget.

Launch of 'Maestro John Monash'

On November 10, Josh was honoured to launch ‘Maestro John Monash’, an important new book by The Hon Tim Fischer AC. Tim was Australia’s Deputy Prime Minister under John Howard and was our first resident ambassador to the Holy See. While countless scholars and historians have recounted Monash's heroic exploits on the battlefield and beyond, none have taken up the cause to have Monash posthumously promoted to Field Marshal with the vigour and purpose Tim has now done. With comprehensive research and a practical roadmap for attaining this recognition, this fine book provides us with the wherewithal to right an historical wrong. With the Centenary of ANZAC soon upon us, the timing of Maestro John Monash could not be better. Tim brings his solder's eye to the many World War I campaigns including Gallipoli, the Somme, Hamel and Amiens and compares the performances of the various generals in the context of the challenges they faced. He concludes, as I have, that Monash was in a league of his own. Josh officially launched Tim’s book in the Memorial Hall at Sir John’s alma-mater, Scotch College. It is a fitting time to honour Sir John Monash’s extraordinary life, as arguably our greatest ever Australian. Josh is pictured below speaking at the event, with Tim Fischer and Scotch College Principal Tom Batty, and with the official party outside the Memorial Hall.

Kooyong Student Prize presentation at Camberwell Girls Grammar School

On November 10, Josh was proud to present The Kooyong Student Prize to Georgina McEwen and Emily Bennett at Camberwell Girls Grammar School in Canterbury. The Kooyong Student Prize is an initiative launched this year by Josh to recognise students at schools in the electorate of Kooyong for general excellence, leadership and their contribution to the community. Students are selected by Principals on a broad range of criteria including excellence in both academic and extra-curricular pursuits, leadership, and a strong commitment to upholding the school's values and strengthening the community at large. Josh addressed the student assembly about leadership and community values, and met with the recipients afterwards for morning tea in the Principal's office. Josh is pictured here with Deputy Principal, Trena Jolly, recipients of the prize, the school's student leaders and the Principal, Debbie Dunwoody.

Visit from László Kövér, Speaker of the National Assembly of Hungary

On November 5, Josh was pleased to host Mr Laszlo Kover, the Speaker of the National Assembly of Hungary, and Her Excellency Mrs Anna Siko, the Hungarian Ambassador to Australia, at his electorate office in Camberwell. The Speaker and Josh had a productive discussion about a range of domestic and international issues, including the importance of strengthening economic ties between Australia and Hungary. Josh is pictured here with the Speaker in Josh’s office.
