Anzac Day – a tradition of Yarrawonga College P – 12

Yarrawonga College P – 12 are proud of their long-standing ANZAC Day involvement.   Each year we are encouraged and extremely proud of the way our students embrace and respect this day and the events that run alongside it.

In 2020 this ANZAC Day will be commemorated like no other.

We will not have our traditional school assembly where over 900 students, from our youngest of students, age 5 to our Year 12 school leaders gather as one; where you could hear a pin drop as they sit and listen to our senior school leaders present their ANZAC Day speeches and show great respect for our RSL Reprsentative, Mr Brian Cossar, as he addresses our school community.

We will not be attending our traditional marches in Yarrawonga and Mulwala, where our school continually boasts a strong cohort of school students, teachers and families every year.  We have been recognised by our Community as an integral part of these annual ceremonies.

In 2020, Yarrawonga College P-12 will continue to pay respect to our fallen heroes, those who have served and our current Servicemen and Servicewomen as we always do, but in a much different way.

As ANZAC day approaches we invite our families to pay respect in their own way, in their own homes, with their loved ones.  For your information and guidance there are some great websites highlighting how you can do this.

Just one of the many activities planned it to stand  in your driveway at 5.55am, watching the sunrise.

Given we cannot all congregate as we normally would tomorrow to commemorate ANZAC Day, we would love to receive some photos of your children commemorating in their own way, whilst keeping the necessary social distancing.

If your family is happy to take some photos and share them, please send them via Messenger to our College Facebook Page. We would love to see them.

Lest we forget
