Today, at St Dominic’s College we remembered lives lost and the lives saved.
ANZAC Day is one of Australia’s most important national occasions. It marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during World War One.
What became known as the “ANZAC legend” became an important part of the identity of both our nations, shaping the ways in which they viewed both their past and their future.
For the past 16 years St Dominic’s College has had the privilege of conducting School ANZAC Day Services.
Every year we reflect on ANZAC day and pose the question “Is our ANZAC Spirit still alive in our Community today”?
We extend our appreciation to all those men and women who have served and are currently serving our nation who have ultimately sacrificed their lives for us.
Today our Australian flag does not fly from the wind blowing, but from the last breath of every soldier who has fought for our nation.
Lest we forget.
