South Waikato News - - Your Paper, Your Place -

An­other long week­end done and dusted.

I swear it seems likes there’s been noth­ing but long week­ends so far this year.

Not that I should com­plain re­ally.

Any­way I hope you all man­aged to get some rest and spend qaulity time with fam­ily, whilst get­ting along to An­zac Day ser­vices.

The ser­vices across the South Waikato proved quite pop­u­lar, with both young and old turn­ing up to pay their re­spects to the fallen.

It’s great to see so many peo­ple get­ting in­volved to en­sure we never for­get the sac­ri­fices made.

It’s also great to see the young ap­pre­ci­at­ing what the day means.

Toko­roa High School stu­dent Shaun Moon summed it up in his speech per­fectly.

"We spend so much time look­ing for the fu­ture we for­get to turn around. But amongst all this striv­ing for val­i­da­tion and suc­cess we some­times for­get to broaden our vi­sion. To­day is a day of broad­en­ing that vi­sion."

I agree Shaun.
