Students from all over the diocese got up before the crack of dawn, to attend ANZAC Day ceremonies with their schools and families on Tuesday.
At St John's Catholic High School in Nowra, ANZAC Day was commemorated at a special assembly, during which the Last Post was sounded by the grandfather of two students, Isaac and Hannah Morris. Mr Peter Williams, who has been attending ANZAC assemblies for over ten years, plays at approximately 20 services each year. His 121 year old bugle is from the Boer War.
Christian Arjona, Tahlia Pracy, Shayla Fogorty Elena Spiers and Lauren Petrovic from Nazareth Catholic Primary School in Shellharbour, had the honour of representing their school at the local Shellharbour City ANZAC Service. Many other Nazareth families were present, all of whom gathered to acknowledge and pay respect to the servicemen and women who have given their lives for the freedom of our country, and to those who continue to participate in wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations all over the world.
