← Anzac Day Commemorated Across the Region
April 25th – Anzac Day, remains perhaps the most unifying date on our national calendar as people from all backgrounds, all ages and geographic regions come together to remember the sacrifices made and the impact that wars and armed conflict leave on our island nation.
Anzac Day is also an opportunity for our youth to learn more about the Anzac Tradition and support the community by participating in remembrance ceremonies and parades.
This year our college community participated throughout the Bundaberg Region. Students and staff attended Bargara Dawn Service and participated in the march and also the Bundaberg Civic Service. Our Junior School Captains laid a wreath at Bargara while our prefects and Junior School Captains were invited to place a cross at the memorial during the Bundaberg Civic Service at Anzac Park. Our College Captains then laid a wreath at the Elliott Heads Civic Service.
Symphonic Band members were invited to play as an ensemble at the Elliott Heads Civic Service (supported by members of the Salvation Army Bundaberg Corps) with Trumpeter Brandon Ivers playing the Last Post and Reveille at that service. Our Head of Middle and Senior School Cameron Ivers was invited to be the bugler at the Elliott Heads Dawn Service.
While these were the official representations of the college, across the region staff and students could be spotted in different uniforms participating in their local community from the country to the coast.
Bundaberg Christian College were proud of their staff, students, parents and Alumni who were seen participating with Churches, Scouts, Girl Guides, Naval Cadets, Army Cadets, Pipe Bands, Brass Band, Drum Corps, Police and also within the RSL Community marching alongside family members. Many simply attended their local services alongside friends and family paying respect in their own personal way or commemorating through the RSL “Light Up the Dawn” campaign in their own homes.
Thank You to our entire community for the way you continue to highlight the sacrifices of our Australian Service Men and Women as they do their duty across the globe.
