ANZAC Day and Grandparents’ Day 

Seasons and rhythms bring a pattern to life in many ways. Just as God created rhythms such as the seasons and night and day, so the school year has patterns in which our traditions are formed.

This month, April is the month in which the College honours the ANZAC Day tradition. Due to the size of the College population, there are services for both Junior and Secondary Schools. We invite a speaker who is, or has been, a member of the Australian Armed Forces; including some who are alumni, staff or current parents. In recent years, our choirs have also been invited to sing at the Dawn Service held at Gallipoli Barracks.

Every odd-numbered year, it is also the time to honour the grandparents who are able to come to visit with their grandchildren and see the College musical. (In the even years, the grandparents visit in September when the Junior School Concert is held).

So, in 2023, we look forward to ANZAC Day and the musical, “Charlie and The Chocolate Factory”.

Our very first ‘Grandparents’ Day was in 1987 when we had a special celebration of Queensland Day, and parents and grandparents joined in the fun. Grandparents have played an important role in the life of the College through the years, both by volunteering and by prayer.

As both of these occasions are fast approaching, here is a collection of photos from past years for you to enjoy.
