Rotary ANZAC Ceremony & Breakfast
Last week at dawn on Wednesday 26 April, a group of 40 students from Years 8, 10, 11 and 12 attended an ANZAC commemoration ceremony at the memorial walkway out the front of the Mount Waverley Library.
It was fantastic to have our students involved in a community initiative led by the Rotary club to mark the importance of ANZAC Day. The ceremony began with a wonderful bagpipe performance, the last post, minutes silence and rouse were observed and there were some wonderful reflections on what ANZAC Day means to a great number of people in the community.
We were lucky to have great weather for the ceremony which always highlights the importance of ANZAC Day and why it should be marked with such reverence and respect. Well done to the students who recited the Poem ‘In Flanders Fields’, Stanley L, Liliana E & Gemma H. Also a big thank you to the teachers who came to support throughout the morning, Ms Amy Walk, Mr Bill Thomas and Ms Danielle Mott.
