Posted on Wednesday, 24 April 2019

On Anzac Day, we remember and commemorate all Australians and New Zealanders who served and died in all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations and the contribution and suffering of all those who have served.

25 April marks the date when the Allied landings took place on the Gallipoli Peninsula in 1915. RGIT Australia, whose trading name for many is their education provider in Melbourne and Hobart (Tasmania), also pays tribute to the Nepalese Gurkhas who fought alongside the ANZACs. The Gurkhas, too, share a special affinity with Anzac Day, with four Gurkha battalions having fought bravely in the Gallipoli Campaign.

For RGIT Australia, 'Royal Gurkhas' is not merely a brand name. Founded as Gurkhas Institute of Hospitality and Management in 2008, Oakhill Education Group Australia Pty Ltd trading as Royal Gurkhas Institute of Technology, received official permission to add ‘Royal’ to its name in 2011. RGIT Australia proudly lives up to the reputation of the Gurkhas after which it is named, delivering quality education under a name that is synonymous with loyalty and courage.

“Bravest of the brave, most generous of the generous, never had a country more faithful friends than you.” - Sir Ralph Turner MC on the Gurkhas, 1931.
