Schools em­brace An­zac

Isis Town and Country - - News -

GOOD­WOOD State School will be in the thick of An­zac Day com­mem­o­ra­tions in Woodgate.

The small school will march with the pho­tos of Isis’ fallen sol­diers dur­ing the civic ser­vice, but it is the way they have em­braced the An­zac spirit that stands out.

Good­wood has built a close re­la­tion­ship with St Thomas Aquinas School in Win­ton, New Zealand.

“We have a strong con­nec­tion with the RSL and one of their mem­bers has a con­nec­tion with the RSA (New Zealand’s Re­turned Ser­vices As­so­ci­a­tion) in Win­ton,” Good­wood prin­ci­pal Steve Cole­man said.

Among the plethora of Trans-Tas­man ac­tiv­i­ties is a me­mo­rial, which will be pre­sented to the RSL, RSA and both schools at their re­spec­tive An­zac Day ser­vices.
