Sapphire Coast Anglican College Anzac Day assembly

ON THURSDAY, Sapphire Coast Anglican College held a special Anzac assembly.

It was a moving occasion as the students were absorbed by the history surrounding Anzac Day.

College teacher Margaret Stewart presented a beautiful slideshow of her recent travels to Gallipoli.

This slideshow was very moving and was complemented by beautiful music and thoughtful words.

Ms Stewart spoke to the students in detail about the Gallipoli operation and how there were many Australian casualties, including 8141 deaths. 

Special guest for the ceremony was president of the Bega RSL sub-branch Barry Stoney.

Mr Stoney gave an inspiring speech, where he spoke to the students about his life in the military and the importance of celebrating Anzac Day.

You could have heard a pin drop as the students were absorbed in the stories from Mr Stoney as he guided the assembly through his military career.

Sapphire Coast Anglican College is currently celebrating its special 20th anniversary year.

After the assembly, Mr Stoney mentioned he was the original bus driver for the college 20 years ago, where he had the privilege of driving the first busload of students on day one.

The college will be holding its special 20th anniversary dinner on August 16.

Tickets are available at the college by calling on 6494 7777.
