Canterbury’s 2024 ANZAC Day Commemoration Ceremony | Today’s Event & Photo Gallery

During this afternoon’s Years 3–12 ANZAC Day Commemoration Ceremony with students, staff, families and special guests, we honoured those brave souls who selflessly stepped forward to defend their country in times of conflict.

We paid homage – not only to those original ANZAC soldiers, but to all those who have served our country, both here and overseas.

They have enriched our nation’s history and we honoured their hope and sacrifice for the freedom of humankind.

As we head into ANZAC Day, we remember with pride their courage, their compassion, and their comradeship.

Today’s ceremony in the CEC encompassed our own Canterbury Community’s ANZAC Day Honour Roll, heartfelt tributes via video and A/V presentations, The Ode, The Last Post, One Minute’s Silence, The Rouse, the National Anthems of Australia and New Zealand, plus poetry, blessings, prayers and the laying of wreaths.

Thank you to our staff, attending parents, students and our special guest – Warrant Officer Class Two Todd Ryan.


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…
