Remembering the Anzacs

News Date: April 26th, 2018

Bairnsdale Christian Community School students will spend the rest of term learning about the Anzac Spirit following a special service at the school this week.

Veteran David Harvey visited the school Monday, as part of an Anzac Service, to talk about his experiences and what Anzac means to him.

“We were fortunate to have Mr Harvey visit the school and teach our children about the Anzac story and his part in it,” said Principal Lynn Morrison.

“The school’s Anzac service was a very special time and a great start to the term’s themes of mateship, courage, service and caring.

“As part of the celebration, our year six leaders were presented with their badges, which they applied to receive.

“Two of these leaders were then able to lay wreaths at the Bairnsdale Cenotaph as part of the Anzac Day Celebrations, with several of our students participating in the march through town, as we remembered those who fought to keep our country free.”

Leadership has been a strong theme at the school this week, with the year six leaders attending leadership training in Sale.

“Our year six leaders have done a great job coordinating the Anzac Day service, and stepping into their leadership roles within the school this week,” said Ms Morrison.

“The leadership conference provided our students with some strategies and skills to help in their roles within the school and to apply to their own lives. I look forward to seeing them continue to grow as the year progresses.”
