Anzac Day Assembly 2017

Anzac Day Assembly

Anzac Day, 25 April, is one of Australia’s most important national occasions. It marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War.

Anzac Day goes beyond the anniversary of the landing on Gallipoli in 1915. It is the day on which we remember all Australians who served and died in war and on operational service. The spirit of Anzac, with its qualities of courage, mateship, and sacrifice, continues to have meaning and relevance for our sense of national identity.

Today, students were involved in a whole of school assembly organised by the College student leaders. As is traditional for the College, a range of poems, letters and other pieces were presented.

School leaders, Mia Biggs, Abigail Nimmo (College Captains), Tessa Patterson, Britney Porch (College Vice Captains) and Kirsten Trewarn (SLC President) will attend the Anzac Day Pakenham dawn service. The President of the Pakenham RSL has welcomed them to participate in the readings and wreath laying ceremony.
