ANZAC Day Memorial

ANZAC Day Memorial

“They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old; age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them.”

At St Narsai a recurring tradition has been sustained throughout the College annually to commemorate the service men and women who served and sacrificed their lives in the great war of civilisation.

The Gallopoli campaign had a profound impact on Australians at home. 25th April has now become the day on which we remember those who died in war. For Australians today, ANZAC is a time at which Australians reflect on the war and the 8000 Australian soldiers that had been killed.

Our College held an assembly to pay our respects to those service men and women who sacrificed their lives for the future generations.  We were shown a short clip of those who had fought in war, followed by a minute of silence to pay our respect as a College. Two of our prefects, Merna Issac and George Ibrahim laid a wreath in front of the cross. ANZAC day is an important day for us Australians especially for those who have connections to those who had lost their lives.  We are to remember those who sacrificed their lives from such a young age, without thinking about themselves; they fought for their country.

We will remember them
