COMBINED SCHOOLS ANZAC CEREMONY
The combined Schools Anzac Ceremony was held at Monto State High on Monday and this was an excellent opportunity for all the schools to come together for an event. The guest speaker, Mr David Wiskar, Deputy Chief Executive Officer of the North Burnett Regional Council, spoke of the lessons learnt during our involvement in the Gallipoli Campaign and the importance of the younger generations remembering the lessons of the Anzacs. The Senior Leaders of Monto State High chaired the ceremony with the Student leaders from Mulgildie SS, Monto SS, Abercorn SS and St Therese’s contributing to the presentation. On Tuesday, a large group of Monto SHS students, the Student Leaders attended the Dawn Service and the Morning Parade commemorating the Anzacs. Throughout all the ceremonies, the students conducted themselves in a respectful manner and it is evident that the legacy of the Anzacs will continue into the future.
