ANZAC Day and Remembrance Assembly

Anzac Day And Remembrance Assembly 1

On the 25 of April, five school leaders and our new principal Mr Cameron met out in front of Mitchell Park, where we joined the well-attended parade. We then marched up to the new war memorial where we listened to the Australian and New Zealand national anthems, the last post, and a moving speech from the RSL president. After that, we lined up in front of the memorial and waited until we heard our school name get called out, then 2 leaders took the wreath and placed it at the base of the memorial. It was a great experience and helped us remember the soldiers who sacrificed their lives for their country – Lest We Forget.

On Friday 26 April Vasse Primary School held a special whole school assembly commemorating ANZAC Day.

The Student Councillors hosted the ANZAC assembly with Principal Alex Cameron addressing the school (in his first Vasse PS assembly) with a story of a young, courageous Digger, full of potential before the war, who fought and lost his life for our nation.

A beautiful fresh wreath was laid at the foot of the Australian Flag pole to symbolise the soldiers who have come to their final resting place. Heads bowed as the bugle sounded “The Last Post” followed by one-minute silence – a pause of respect to those men and women who have given their lives while serving to protect our country.

The Vasse Choir led the whole school in the Australian National Anthem with a fabulous solo by Laycee and Stella. The choir then sang the New Zealand National Anthem. And to finish off the choir performed ‘Song of Australia’ – a beautiful finale to our ANZAC Remembrance Assembly.
