On Wednesday, our Year 5-10 students and staff gathered in the Savio Centre to commemorate ANZAC Day which took place last Monday during the term break. I would like to firstly extend my thanks to all students, families and staff who represented our College at the Glenorchy, Lenah Valley, New Norfolk, Brighton, and Hobart Services last week.
Our assembly on Wednesday was respectfully led by many students and it was particularly moving to hear our Year 9 students reflect on what they had been learning about war in History last term. Several students shared their views on what ANZAC Day means to them and why it is especially important for us to continue to hold this tradition in memory of those who have fought for our country and for the freedoms of other nations. Our choir and concert band did a stellar job too, and my thanks to all students and staff involved in preparing this important assembly for us. Let us continue to be people who work for peace in our world and pray for those in our world who are currently experiencing war in their countries and who do not have the freedoms and opportunities that we are so lucky to have in Australia due to the courage and sacrifice of our veterans in the many wars they have been involved in. Lest we forget.
Mr Steve Casni
