ANZAC Day 2016

14/04/2016
ANZAC Day Service,
Richard Russell Park, Manly.
This year Wondall School has been invited to attend Manly-Lota RSL’s ANZAC Day Service and March. All Wondall families are invited to attend this service, and to represent our school as we march to honour all who have served.
Participating students and their families are asked to meet Wondall staff at 7:30am outside Manly State School, Ernest St Manly. Students must wear full formal school uniform (including black shoes, navy socks, a Wondall hat and a navy jumper if needed). The march progresses from Ernest Street down Mountjoy Tce and Cambridge Pde to Richard Russell Park for the service.
All members of our Wondall community are encouraged to join us for this important occasion.
 
ANZAC Service at Wondall
Wondall’s ANZAC service for 2016 will be held on Friday, 22 April in our hall, with the service commencing at 9:15am.  Wondall families and friends are invited to attend this
service.
Sale of ANZAC ribbons, stickers and tattoos
Our Student Leaders will be selling Anzac ribbons ($1), stickers (50c) and tattoos (50c). They will be available before school on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of week 2 (20, 21, 22 April) at the main entrance to the school. It would be lovely to see students wearing the stickers and ribbons to school on Friday 22 for our ANZAC Service. A reminder that the tattoos must be non-visible, worn underneath the uniform sleeve.
All funds raised will support our returned servicemen, servicewomen and their families. 
 
The Spirit of ANZAC Centenary Experience
The Centenary of Anzac 2014 to 2018 is an important period of national commemoration. Marking 100 years since our involvement in the First World War, the Anzac Centenary is a time to honour the service and sacrifice of our original ANZACs, and the generations of Australian servicemen and women who have defended our values and freedoms in wars, conflicts and peace operations throughout a Century of Service.
