Students and staff honour Anzac Day traditions
Trinity students and staff have been thanked for their community service in helping to honour the solemnity and dignity of local Anzac Day commemorations.
Trinity cadets assisted in services at Strathfield, Ashfield, Drummoyne, Balmain and Burwood.
They also also travelled to Huskisson on the NSW south coast with members of the School marching band to take part in the Anzac Day service at the village closest to the School’s Field Studies Centre at Woollamia.
“Our people played a central role in that community’s Anzac Day parade,” Head Master Tim Bowden told a quad assembly.
“The sense of occasion our musicians and cadets were able to bring was significant, and greatly appreciated by the local community.
“It was an act of service that cost our boys and our staff – they lost the vast majority of their public holiday in order to serve in that way. The nature of service is that it costs.”
Mr Bowden reminded students that Anzac Day was not a celebration but a commemoration.
“We remember with respect and honour.
“We remember those particularly who at one point wore our green and white, who bore our triangular badge, who sat in classes in our rooms, who ran in our fields, and who also served and gave their all.”
