To perpetuate the memory of the privations and sacrifices of Australian and Allied prisoners of war and the selfless dedication of the medical personnel during the construction of the Burma Thailand Railway by informing current and future generations through all forms of education and particularly with the Annual Quiet Lion Tours to the Burma Thai Railway; the River Kwai; the Three Pagoda Pass; Anzac Day at "Hellfire Pass" and Kanchanaburi War Cemetery.

Students laid a wreath in honour of Ernie Redman OAM. Ex-POW,Ernie was an honorary staff member of Esperance SHS and accompanied many students on the tour.
