Our school recently held an ANZAC Day assembly, which was organized by our Head Students – Belle, Will, Evie, and Ariki. The assembly was a solemn occasion to honor the brave men and women who have served and sacrificed for our country.

We were privileged to have a special guest, D’Arcy Bailey, a veteran from the New Zealand Army, who shared his personal experiences and insights about the conflicts that New Zealand has been involved in. D’Arcy’s talk was incredibly moving, and he recited a beautiful poem called ‘Why Wear a Poppy’, which highlighted the significance of ANZAC Day.

The assembly provided an opportunity for our school community to reflect on the sacrifices made by our servicemen and women and to pay our respects to those who have given their lives for our country. It was a powerful reminder of the importance of ANZAC Day and the need to honor those who have served our nation with bravery and dedication.

We would like to thank D’Arcy Bailey for sharing his story with us, and our Head Students for organizing such a meaningful and respectful assembly. We hope that this event has inspired our students to continue to remember and honor the legacy of our ANZACs for generations to come.
