Mooroolbark students unveiled a sprawling field of poppies to commemorate Anzac Day.

Billanook College partnered with landscape designer Phillip Johnson to create the display by the school creek’s banks.

Weekly student and staff poppy workshops, help from current and past families, local knitting groups and interstate donations contributed to the 10,000-plus poppies.

The college officially launched the display at its annual Anzac Day service on Wednesday 24 April.
