Anzac Day


ANZAC Day goes beyond the anniversary of the landing on Gallipoli in 1915. It is the day we remember all Australians who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations. The spirit of ANZAC, with its human qualities of courage, mateship, and sacrifice, continues to have meaning and relevance for our sense of national identity.

Yesterday, Thursday 25th April, ceremonies were held in towns and cities across Australia to acknowledge the service of our veterans.

This year’s ANZAC Day ceremony may have had a new significance to students, following their learning about the ANZAC tradition in class and their experience of a school ANZAC service.​
