Lest We Forget

ANZAC Day occurs on the 25th of April every year.  On this day, we honour all the men and women who have participated in wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations around the world, including the ANZACs (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) who fought at Gallipoli in Turkey during World War One. Incredibly, more than 100 years have passed since New Zealand's involvement in that war, and we continue to remember and respect those who travelled to a foreign country to fight for their country and for the British Empire.  On Friday, our school commemorated this day by having a liturgy in the church followed by a ceremony in front of our school's Field of Remembrance.  It was a poignant time for all of us to remember those relatives and members of our community who fought for our freedom.  Lest We Forget.
