traditional ANZAC Day service. The
school Vice-Captains Taelene Anderson and Ryan Kastner, Indigenous Vice-Captain
Shania Capper and School Captains Ben Bozzetto and Lorenza Palombi admirably
compered the solemn occasion. We were
pleased to have a large number of invited guests present to help commemorate

delivered the main address.
