There’s something reverent about an Anzac Day ceremony. It’s the way the crowd gathers in solemn silence, faces lost down the twisting paths of individual memories. It’s the way that the flag flutters up and down the flagpole during that endless minute of silence. It’s in the way that the speakers’ voices seem to resonate with emotion and every word spoken or sung, drips with meaning.
It was a day like that on the final day of term one, when we gathered as a school at the base of our flagpole for a moving Anzac Day ceremony.
Students sat respectfully and listened to school councillors as they read poems and our choirs sang beautifully, under the guidance of our musical maestro, Ms Helen. You can listen to them on the MP3s below.
