2018 ANZAC Day Ceremony

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.
