On Wednesday, we had our ANZAC day service. ANZAC day is most important in the Australian calendar as it commemorates the massive sacrifice given by so many of the youth of our young country at a time when it was first formed as it is today, with States and federation. The enormous effort and willingness of our first ANZACs to support what we believe in, even though things were tough, did a lot to set the national spirit of Australia and Australians.
My thanks go to Caroline Duffus for coordinating this event. Certainly the tradition that sits around ANZAC day at Jindalee is very evident and community members, students and staff alike work to observe the solemness of this occasion.
At Jindalee this occasion was certainly well supported by the community, students and staff alike, and represents a significant event within the culture and life of this school.
My thanks also go to all of the students who contributed to this service, the staff and our special guest, Warrant Officer Class 1 Robert Davidson.
