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 Wednesday 24th April Alawa held its own special ANZAC assembly hosted by 5/6 Lotherington. Students, family and friends joined together to remember all those that have served and protected. Special guest Flying Officer Robert Cochrane took time to talk to us about the importance of ANZAC Day. The ANZAC story shows us how important it was and still is to do our very best. The example of the men of ANZAC and later generations of Australian service men and women should inspire us today.
We thank everyone who joined us including our special guest speaker and bugler [Robin Kidney] and we thank all those, past, present and future who serve(d) our country. Lest we forget.
