School pays its re­spect to An­zacs

Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - NEWS -

STU­DENTS, teach­ers, fam­ily and com­mu­nity mem­bers gath­ered at Brunswick Junc­tion Pri­mary School on Wed­nes­day for a com­mem­o­ra­tive An­zac ser­vice.

Stu­dent coun­cil­lors Amity Brem­mell and Con­nor Obal led the ser­vice, with the Wel­come to Coun­try per­formed by Gre­gory Williams, Acel Turner and An­neMarie Williams.

Aus­tralian Light Horse As­so­ci­a­tion rep­re­sen­ta­tive and vice pres­i­dent of the Bun­bury troop, Harry Ball, was guest speaker for the event.

Mr Ball spoke of the mes­sages the stu­dents could learn from the An­zacs and re­turned ser­vice­men.

He said it was im­por­tant for stu­dents “to be­come part of the com­mu­nity in or­der to make changes” in the world around them.

The school choir sang a spritely ren­di­tion of Pack up Your Trou­bles, ac­com­pa­nied by Shani Katani on piano.

Rep­re­sen­ta­tives from com­mu­nity groups then placed wreaths at the foot of the Aus­tralian flag, in­clud­ing the Brunswick unit of the Red Cross and the town’s Com­mu­nity Re­source Cen­tre.

Mur­ray-Welling­ton MLA Robyn Clarke also laid a wreath and paid her re­spects to the An­zacs.

Re­tired Brunswick teacher and ex-ser­vice­man Roy Hansen read the ode to the assem­bly, fol­lowed by a mov­ing per­for­mance of The Last Post by Aus­tralind Se­nior High School stu­dent Bay­den Adams.
