APRE (Religious Education)
From the A.P.R.E.
ANZAC Day goes beyond the anniversary of the landing on Gallipoli in 1915. It is the day we remember all Australians who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations. The spirit of ANZAC, with its human qualities of courage, mateship, and sacrifice, continues to have meaning and relevance for our sense of national identity. On ANZAC Day, ceremonies are held in towns and cities across the nation to acknowledge the service of our veterans.
We are commemorating ANZAC Day today with a special liturgy. Each class has been reflecting on the message of ANZAC Day and have created their own floral wreath to present during our liturgy. We were very privileged to welcome Mr Mick Eaton (grandfather of Joseph in Year 2) to a special assembly on Monday. Mr Eaton shared the ANZAC story with our students and presented some wonderful messages of friendship, peace and service to others.
Until next week.
May God hold you in the palm of His hand
