ANZAC Day Ceremony 2018

Posted on 09 May 2018

Class wreaths laid at the 2018 ANZAC Day ceremony


On Wednesday the 2nd of May we held an ANZAC ceremony in the Indigenous garden at Turner School. Kindergarten to year 6 students, teachers and parents gathered to help commemorate this important day.

It was great to see those who attended show their respect during the ceremony, especially during the minute silence. A special mention and congratulations to Nina B who played The Last Post, and Sara E who played The Rouse. These are especially difficult pieces of music and they both did an amazing job. Thank you to each class for creating a beautiful wreath for our SRC reps to place on their class’ behalf. These wreaths are now on display in the corridor near the front office. A couple of memorable special moments from the ceremony included our talented teacher musicians playing ‘I was only 19’, and Emma P reading her beautifully and thoughtfully written poem ‘ANZAC’.

Finally, a special thanks to everyone who helped out at the ceremony, and to Charlotte and Georgia who organised and ran the assembly.

The rotation activities including water park play, beach volleyball, Rob the Nest and many others allowed all students to have the opportunity to participate and enjoy the day. A huge thank you to all of the amazing volunteers from our Turner community and Lyneham High.
