Echuca College was well represented at Anzac Day ceremonies across the district and the globe. Students raised the flag at the Moama service and laid wreaths at the Echuca and the Moama services.
Our students of tour in Turkey had already laid a wreath at Lone Pine and paid their respects in Turkey on the 100th commemoration of the landing at Gallipoli. Having already crossed the Dardenelles and toured Anzac Cove, the cemeteries and museums. Our Principal Mr Chris Eeles visited Villes Bretonneux and toured the Western Front to pay his respects on this day.
The service held at the College was an outstanding display of respect and our School Captains led a very informative session on the meaning of Anzac Day and with an explanation and display of the meaning of many of the items of memorabilia we see on this day. Guest speaker Graham Willis truly engaged the students and staff with his speech and moved many to tears as he spoke of relatives and stories from the past.
