I am delighted to report that our College Choir and College Captains participated in the Anzac Day dawn service, held on Tuesday 25 April at the Lilydale Cenotaph. It was a privilege to see our students representing our College in such an important event, honoring the men and women who have served and continue to serve our country.
Our College Choir sang beautifully, filling the early morning air with heartfelt renditions of classic hymns and both New Zealand and Australian National anthems. They demonstrated their musical talent and dedication, and represented our College with pride. Read more HERE.
Additionally, our College Captains played a role in the event. Elena Atanasovski and Campbell Manser laid a wreath on behalf of our College community to honour the sacrifices of the brave soldiers who fought and died for our country's freedom. Afterwards, they had a photo (below) with Casey MP Aaron Violi, one of our Old Collegians (Class of 2012), who was also part of the service.
The Anzac Day dawn service is a significant event, and it is wonderful to see our students taking part in such an important commemoration. It is essential for the next generation to recognise the significance of the day and to continue to honour the sacrifices made by those who have served our country. To reinforce this, a full school service was held on Wednesday morning with readings from Humanities Prefect Olivia Barre and Mercy and Justice Prefect Thomas Hobley.
Our College community should be proud of the students who attended and represented our school. We are proud of our students and their dedication to honour and remember the bravery and sacrifice of our service members.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the Anzac Day dawn service, and we look forward to continuing this tradition in the years to come.
