Anzac Day

Today our school had a special assembly in remembrance of ANZAC Day. Lots of us have learned a bit more about why this day is special and why we need to remember this. We were very lucky to be given a field for us to gather around. We heard and hope that other schools around New Zealand held something similar too. We had a minutes silence and our prefects did a special karakia too.
