ANZAC assembly demonstrates respect

Respect was the central theme of the school’s end-of-term assembly which, led by students in Year 9, served as a commemoration of those who have fought in wars in advance of ANZAC day.

Students had previously visited classrooms to collect donations and distribute poppies to support the RSA. Asher Cao, in Year 2, spoke about their significance.

“Every year we show that we respect and thank all of the soldiers who have fought for us in the wars. We wear these poppies to remember what they did for us … it shows we have not forgotten them,” the six-year-old said.

The assembly is a precursor to the school’s participation in the Civic Memorial Service organised by Tauranga council. Student leaders from around the Bay of Plenty region will lay wreaths of remembrance to show respect for fallen soldiers and those who fought in the wars. Two of these will be from ACG Tauranga.

Families wishing to attend the Civic Memorial Service as part of our school community are welcome. We will meet to the left of the steps of the QEII Memorial Hall at Memorial Park at 8.20am. The service begins at 9am.
