ANZAC Day 2020

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them. Lest we forget.

Although we couldn’t be together for ANZAC this year, it didn’t stop us commemorating this important national event.

Our Primary students on campus created poppies in class to decorate the courtyard memorial stone. Year 6 students also had the opportunity to make wreaths in class and participated in a wreath laying service at the memorial stone, while maintaining social distancing requirements. We also uploaded a special video to our Primary Instagram page made by Year 6 students.

Secondary students made poppies, and Year 10 student Joseph Arro played the last post. The Library has an ANZAC display which is also decorated with wreaths and poppies.

Along with many Australians across the nation, Genesis students and their families commemorated ANZAC Day from their own homes this year. Through our online ANZAC Day Facebook event, we were able to share the different ways our community participated in ANZAC Day events. Families shared videos of students playing the last post, posted photos of their Driveway Dawn Services as well as sharing creative home-made lanterns, poppies and wreaths.
