Even though it is the middle of our two-week term break, many of our students attended today's community parade to commemorate ANZAC Day.
ANZAC stands for Australia and New Zealand Army Corps.
On April 25 1915 New Zealand and Australia forces landed in Gallipoli during the First World War.
The events of that campaign led to many casualties, but also helped to create a sense of national identity in both countries.
ANZAC Day has been marked in New Zealand since 1916.
It is now the day where we remember all who have lost their lives in any military operation that our country has been involved in.
In our small town a dawn service is held at 6am followed by a community parade at 10am.
