Anzac Day 2016

Michelle Auld October 20th

ANZAC was the name given to the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps soldiers who landed on the Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey early on the morning of 25th April 1915 during the First World War (1914-1918).

As a result, one day in the year has involved the whole of Australia in ceremonies of remembrance, gratitude and national pride for all our men and women who have fought and died in all wars. That day is ANZAC Day – 25th April.

The Shire of Yilgarn held its morning service at 11am at the War Memorial in Southern Cross, with a large number of school and community members in attendance.

St Joseph’s School was represented at the ANZAC Service by one of our Year 6 students, Cheree Navales. Thank you to Cheree and Miss Reeve for laying a wreath on behalf of our school.
