As part of our school’s contribution to the local community ANZAC DAY Observances, we have invited all children from Prep to Year Six to participate in the ANZAC Day Parade. ANZAC Day, held on 25th April each year, is a commemoration, not a celebration. It is a time for recognition and remembrance of the sacrifices made by all those who have served Australia in time of conflict or who currently serve in the Defence Forces. It is a time to reaffirm a resolve to seek peace rather than war. This latter point has seen a resurgence of interest in Anzac Day, particularly by young Australians.
We would like to see as many students as possible, proudly walking with our school. It is particularly important that all members of Year Six make a special effort as School Leaders to attend this Ceremony. A note will be going home about this shortly.
We are holding a significant working bee on Saturday 28th April. A note will be going home tomorrow about this and I ask that you offer time where you can, even if only for a short time. If you have particular expertise in the areas we are working on and would like to assist by doing some things outside of the scheduled working bee timeslot them please let me know.
