Anzac Day Commemoration - Bellarine Campus
As recognise ANZAC Day, our Campus held an ANZAC service on Monday morning.
This event commemorated the sacrifice of our military men and women throughout history, allowing students to show their respect for our fallen soldiers. Prefects were involved in prayers, readings and wreath laying. The students performed a hymn and the national anthem within the service, and remained amazingly respectful of the meaning of this day.
The Last Post was played by Year 6 student, Mitchell Grunberg. This service has grown and has continued to be a key event on our Bellarine Campus calendar. It was great to have members of the Drysdale RSL present and involved. I talked about a man named Maurice Little, who took part in the Gallipoli battle of Quinn’s Post. Maurice was known to be capable and courageous but, more importantly, a man known for his fine Christian character - a born leader with the ability to inspire his men.
During battle, Maurice was critically injured all over his body. His attitude was always positive and optimistic, which was due to his unshakable Christian faith. Maurice’s faith and determination showed a hopefulness that could not be overcome by his injuries or by all he had seen.
He did not blame or question the God whom he trusted.
