ANZAC day

25/04/2014

​Mount Isa Central State School students showed their respect to the fallen and to those who have or are still serving our country at the ANZAC Day ceremonies on the 24th and 25th of April. 2014 marks the 99th anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the first world war. ANZAC Day allows us to recall the bravery of all the men and women who have fought for our freedom throughout history.

Classes were exposed to stories of courage, comradeship and bravery of our ANZACs throughout history. Each class made and laid a wreath at the base of our flag pole during a moving ANZAC Day ceremony, organised and run by our year 6 and year 7 school leaders. Special guest Lieutenant Matt Stallman of the 51st Delta Company captivated our students with his inspiring commemorative address.

Our school ceremony was well attended by members of the wider community, which included staff, students, parents and local business people. Central State School was also well represented at the Mount Isa ANZAC Day events. Students and their families were present for both the dawn service and community service held at George McCoy Park.

We would like to thank the entire community for joining us in recognising this significant national occasion. Lest we forget.
