TANNUM Sands State High School Year 11 student Mackenzie Plath commemorated Anzac Day in Gallipoli after winning a coveted spot in the Premiers' Anzac Prize.

Mackenzie began the trip with a visit to the newly opened Remember Me First World War exhibition at the Queensland Museum.

He said he was enjoying being in the company of like-minded people.

"I know I am going to enjoy the company of the other group members on this once-in-a-lifetime tour. I am very eager to experience first-hand the battlefield history and I can't wait to tell my soldiers' stories and to share and learn from the stories that will be presented by my fellow group members," he said.

The school had their own Anzac Day commemoration last Thursday inside the performance centre for the first time, rather than at the Anzac Memorial Stone.
