Anzac Day recognised at Macleans College

Posted on May 05, 2017

An Anzac service was held during the last week of Term One.

On Thursday April 13th the school reflected on the events of Gallipoli and the landing at Anzac Cove on April 25th 1915.

The Principal Mr Byron Bentley commented on how our national identity was forged for the first time during this event.

A number of the school prefects, including the Head and Deputy Prefects read statements out to the school about New Zealand’s involvement in international conflict since World War One and the sacrifice which had been made by New Zealanders.

The Ode to Remembrance was recited. The National Anthem was sung and Tony Chen (Mansfield House) played the Last Post.
