The spirit of the ANZACS was realised on Wednesday with our ANZAC Day Assembly. Before our own, I escorted our School Captains and Vice Captains as representatives of St Bernard SS at the Tamborine Mountain State High School Ceremony (a tremendous ceremony).
I was so impressed by our student body that clearly demonstrated the understanding of not only the event, but the nature of why we have this special occasion. Our special guests (that included Federal member for Wright, Mr Scott Buchholz, State Member for Beaudesert, Mr Jon Krause and President of the Tamborine Mountain RSL Sub-branch, Mr John Brookes) commented on how well our students kept concentration and beautiful audience manners.
It is with great pride that I acknowledge our student leaders – an excellent job at hosting, with a special mention of Laura Ross’s speech, that I believe captured the essence of the day. The event could not have gone so well without the ever reliable professionalism of Trish Wilmott.
Please visit our ANZAC commemorative garden at the front of the school to view the rejuvenated Private Jenyns plaque set in a wonderfully prepared Queensland hardwood, sourced and prepared by Mr Tony Reed (our great Schools Officer).
Lest we forget.
