ANZAC Day (1)

04 May 2018

A whole school assembly was held on Thursday 24th April to celebrate Anzac Day. We were honoured to have Mr Bruce Challenor in attendance as President of Lara RSL, along with other local dignatories. Mr Challenor shared a story of a local Lara resident who had fought in the war, and of his mother’s anguish learning of his death and being unable to identify a burial site for him due to the intense battles that decimated where he had been buried. Mr Aaron Butters sang ‘Waltzing Matilda’ and did an amazing job telling this story in song. Our cadets represented various units within the armed forces, marching in upon the start of the assembly and exiting as directed by their formal commands, bringing an air of reverence to our celebration.
