ANZAC Parade 2011

Today members of our school, and other community groups, marched 
in the  Anzac Day parade, 
to commemorate the lives lost in war.
ANZAC means Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, 
and the day is observed in 
both New Zealand and Australia.
This morning we gathered at the RSA (Returned Services Association) building and marched behind the pipe bands
to the cenotaph.
Words of remembrance were spoken,
the Roll of Honour for our district was read out,
and the wreaths were laid.
The brass band played 'God Save the Queen' and a lone trumpeter played 'The Last Post'.
Anzac Day is an important national day to many 
New Zealanders.

What are the days that are important to you and your community?

  2. Hello B4,

    I think it's great that you all participated in the Anzac parade.

    I'm aways forgetting what Anzac stands for and your the first blog to mention what it means.
