Project Info

Over 700 students, staff, and parents gathered in solemn silence on the eve of ANZAC’s 100th commemoration, to acknowledge the fallen soldiers at Gallipoli 1915.

The ceremony featured a karakia from the students of Room 37; the reading of the names of fallen servicemen from our area by Vicki Caisley, chairperson of the Board of Trustees; a reading of In Flanders Fields by Joe Lanning; wreath laying on the Field of Remembrance; the Ode of Remembrance read by Jaelyn Kim, Libby Cairn and Jade Findlay; and the last post played by former CBS student (and now university student) Liam Davis.

Special guests were representatives of the Royal New Zealand Navy who laid a wreath, while Warrant Officer Lance Graham spoke about what the ANZAC spirit means.
