Remembering our ANZACs

At the end of the term, our school community joined together around our new Cenotaph in a service to commemorate our ANZACs in the lead up to ANZAC day.  The 45 minute service provided the school community with the opportunity to listen to a number of student speakers who shared with us this the history of ANZAC Day, the acknowledgement of the many men and women who served our country in time of conflict and in humanitarian missions, and a perspective on what ANZAC Day means to us today.  Our vocal group beautiful sung a rendition of The band Played Waltzing Matilda. As the last post echoed throughout the school, each student reflected on what they had heard and quietly each paid tribute to our ANZACs.

In commemoration of the 100 years of ANZAC, students enrolled in the school’s construction and landscaping course along with other volunteers had constructed a memorial to our ANZACS. The cenotaph made out of brick and concrete construction is located in the precinct of the school’s 50th anniversary garden. The cenotaph stands within the schools flag poles and was the centre piece of the school’s ANZAC service this year and for future years. It will remain as an integral part of the school’s culture and history.

Last year, our Year 7 students planted 100 Rosemary plants (Rosmarinus officianlis ’Gallipoli Rosemary’) along the front of the school from the front gate through to the prominent school sign along the Princes Highway as a living memorial to commemorate the centenary of ANZAC.  The Rosemary plants have matured throughout the year and are now providing sprigs of rosemary worn by students and staff on our days where we commemorate ANZAC day and Remembrance Day.
