ANZAC Service - Tuesday 24th
ANZAC day is a significant day in the calendar for all Australians, as it is in the life of our College.
On Tuesday, our students and guests gathered around the flag pole at the front of our College to take part in what was a moving commemoration service, honoring those who have served and fought for our great nation.
Preceding the service, all students and guests viewed a short film produced by the College acknowledging the strong connection between the township of Villers Bretonneux, France and Australia. As the war waged on the western front, this connection was forged through the Australian army winning back Villers Bretonneux from German control: a victory pivotal to the success of the war effort. This theme was then carried on into the service as we heard the personal story of Lieutenant William Sadlier, a 26 year old from Perth in Western Australia.
Thank you to the families who were in attendance and also to the students and musicians who so capably led what was such an honoring commemoration service.
