The Education Centre Entry Courtyard refers to the First and Second World Wars including many symbolic features. The most dramatic being the giant metallic canopy that takes the form of a Flanders poppy. The wall panels provide and outline of an elongated map of the world and the perforations are a Morse code translation of the Ode of Remembrance by Laurence Binyon.

Other symbolism includes a pattern on the flooring in reference to the First World War dazzle camouflage utilised on HMAS Melbourne and HMAS <i>Australia and a central concrete element in reference to the trenches.
