The 25th April, Anzac Day, is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand that broadly commemorates all Australians and New Zealanders "who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations" and "the contribution and suffering of all those who have served".
On Friday the 27th April, Alawa held its own special ANZAC assembly hosted by 5/6 Hammond. Students, family and friends joined together to remember all those that have served and protected. Special guest Major John Ronayne took time to talk to us about the importance of ANZAC Day and what it means to be in the armed service, a family of solidarity, mate ship and respect.
We thank everyone who joined us and we thank all those, past, present and future who serve(d) our country. Lest we forget.
