Visitors Welcome

ANZAC day is the solemn day of remembrance of those Australian and new Zealand Army Corps soldiers who fought and died at Gallipoli in 1915. It is also a day of remembrance for all service men and women who have fought and died for their country. We pay our respects to those selfless Australian servicemen, who paved the way for this country we share. It is also a time to remember the current service men and women protecting our country and assisting in peacekeeping operations.
.  
"The Gallipoli campaign of World War I is perhaps Australia's best known military endeavour."
On April 25th, 2015, it will be 100 years since Australian and New Zealand troops landed at what is now known as ANZAC Cove and faced the formidable Turkish troops.
Our school has always commemorated this event with an assembly conducted by the students.
.
.This year our school's ANZAC service will be held on Friday 24th April at 1:30pm in the first week of Term 2.
It will be presented by our captains and prefects. There will be a display of information provided by our families who have, or have had, a relative in the Services. It is hoped that many families will contribute.
to those families who have  contributed with photographs and information in preparation for the display in our school hall. 

You are invited to come and see the items contributed by families and studies. Also there is a wonderful display of poppies, paintings and poems created by the students
