ANZAC Day

On Thursday 11 April our school community came together around our Cenotaph in a moving service to commemorate our ANZACs in the lead up to ANZAC day. This event is an important part of our school culture where each year we come together in a respectful and solemn fashion to commemorate this most significant day.

The service was led by our School Captain Georgia Brownhill and Vice Captain Marcus Doty, who did an outstanding job as MCs. Members of our prefect body and representatives from each year group spoke respectfully and cited poetry in remembrance of the fallen and the many sacrifices made by soldiers and families.

Student speakers, Sonny French, Jacqueline Marsh, Taylor Napier, Angie Dumas, Laila Ross and Caitlin Clancy were outstanding representatives of their year groups, sharing with us the history of ANZAC Day, acknowledging  the many men and women who served and continue to serve our country in time of conflict and in humanitarian missions. Each provided a different perspective on what ANZAC Day means to all Australians today. Alani Dalley of year 7 played the Last Post and Reveille while everyone solemnly reflected on the meaning and significance of the day.

Special thanks to our special guests, Arie Havenaar, president of Miranda RSL who shared a moving story and tribute to General John Monash, an Australian hero who served in World War 1, Kem Rakiposki, Director Educational Leadership Woronora and to Rob Russell, president of our P and C who joined us on this significant occasion. Thank you to Mrs Polianitis, Mr Liley and Dr Hastie for their work in the successful running of this event.

Thank you to our prefects Sarah Graham, Blake Shearsby, Kyra Upton, Georgia Brownhill, Caitlin Clancy and Ashleigh Mason who proudly represented our school at the Miranda RSL Sub-Branch ANZAC Dawn Service on Thursday 25 April.
