Te Rapa Primary School

Anzac Ceremony

Posted on 22 May 2019

On Thursday the 25th of April we had the privilege to go to the 10 o’clock ANZAC  ceremony and represented the school by laying a wreath at the cenotaph. We got to watch the marching band and listen to some heartfelt speeches by the Mayor, MPs and the student representative from Fairfield College (Elizabeth Bainbridge), as well as singing the National Anthems for England, Australia and New Zealand. Afterwards, we laid the wreath by the cenotaph and placed our poppies on the dais.


It was such a great honour to be selected to represent Te Rapa at the ceremony. I loved listening to all the speeches. They really made me think about how lucky I am and how brave those soldiers were. Overall, it was a great experience and one that I will cherish forever. -Katelyn


I really enjoyed being selected to lay the wreath with Katelyn and positively representing the school. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience and I will never forget this memory. - Libby
