“What ANZAC Day Means” – Town Of Cambridge Commemorative Service

Despite a heightened fear of terrorism within the community, according to local RSL, hundreds of people turned out to commemorate ANZAC day at the service held at the West Leederville Memorial Gardens and Cenotaph. With our College students, Tui Dougiamas and Alex Warburton representing Bold Park Community School we listened as the pair gave an address on what ANZAC Day means to young people today.

Tui revealed a personal story of her great grandfather narrowly being missed by a flying bullet overhead by bending down at just the right time. He then shot the men who targeted him and this led onto a life marred by mental illness. The story was compelling and led us to think about the families that may not have been. Alex felt grateful to have a younger sibling, thanking those who have fought and given their lives for our freedom, and allowing us to have the friends, peers and families we have today.

 The Master of Ceremonies commented on his pride in seeing so many schools represented at the service as he called them forward to lay a wreath. Tui and Alex laid the beautiful Banksia wreath for Bold Park Community School at the foot of Cenotaph and paused to show respect.


Over 100 years after the battle at Gallipoli, and the Western Front, the Australians who fell and those who still serve were remembered today for their courage. Mr Sean L’Estrange who has served in the defence force, spoke to us about what we can learn from these men and women. He spoke about building “Moral Courage” – having the strength to stand up for what we think is wrong. This is something that we can practice in our daily lives.

The “Last Post” sounded and a minute of silence was respected.
