We will remember them

It was fantastic to see Cobram AGS students out in force on Anzac Day attending services in their local communities. Many students played an active role in their respective service and served our school with great distinction.

Our School Captain Rory Brooker was handed the major responsibility of being MC at the 10am Cobram service and did an outstanding job, while Year 9 student Lewis Brown had the huge privilege of performing the Last Post at the Dawn Service and 10am service in Cobram also.

In addition to our students and staff attending a range of Anzac Day services on the day itself, we also held our own service in the PAC on 27 April, where we were fortunate to be joined by John Hanlon OAM, Secretary of the Cobram Barooga RSL Sub-Branch.

John spoke to our students about the sacrifices made by those who served during numerous wars to help create the freedom we all enjoy today. A key theme of his address focused on how it will be up to the youth of today’s society to ensure that the legacy of our servicemen and servicewomen continues to live on by attending and participating in commemorative services such as ANZAC Day and Remembrance Day.
