For our Parents/Carers attending a School Assembly is not something you get to do. Here is a snap shot of photos from Friday 22nd April where we held an entire school Anzac Assembly.
Our School Captains and student leaders MC most of our Assemblies and to coordinate the Assembly we all work off a Running Sheet Program (copy of Fridays is below).

The Ode comes from For the Fallen, a poem by the English poet and writer Laurence Binyon, which was first published in the London newspaper The Times on 21 September 1914.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
