"LEST WE FORGET"
This year our school's ANZAC service was held on Friday 24th April.
It was beautifully presented by our captains and prefects. Savannah sang "In Flanders Fields", Molly and Fenna led the singing of "Heal The World" and the choir sang "One Day". All the performances were excellent.
There was a display in our school hall which included information provided by our families who have, or have had, a relative in the Services, as well as items produced by the students. Thank you to all those families who contributed.

 
Catafalque Ceremony

 

At the conclusion of the afternoon assembly a Catafalque Guard was Ceremony executed by the cadets from  226 Cadet Unit Normanhurst in our school grounds around our flag pole. Jessica expertly played the Last Post and Reveille (Rouse) on the trumpet. Experienced piper, Mr Jim Braid, played the bagpipes during the ceremony as well as leading our whole school from the hall to the area around the flag pole..

"The Gallipoli campaign of World War I is perhaps Australia's best known military endeavour."
On April 25th, 2015, it was 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.
