Spirit of Australia Foundation
Adopt as your fundamental creed that you will equip yourself for life, not solely for your own benefit but for the benefit of the whole community
The Spirit of Australia Foundation was established to remember and commemorate Australia's heritage.
We aim to honour great Australians, such as Sir John Monash, who have made significant contributions to the Australian community and beyond, to make them known and recognised by all Australians, and an inspiration, particularly to students, to develop their possibilities and potential for our community.
Each year SoA conducts Monash Commemorative Services in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. St Catherine's hosted the Sydney Ceremony on 3 June, while Somerville House hosted the Queensland Ceremony on 18 May. The Melbourne Ceremony will be held in Parliament House on 5 August as part of 0808 Week activities (see details below).
