Our guest speaker was CGS parent Brigadier Greg McGlone, who provided us with an understanding of why acts of remembrance like this are so important, and reminded us of the Australian service men and women who are currently deployed in dangerous regions across the globe.

Thank you to Officer Commanding Major (AAC) Michael Neal, Dr John Tuckfield and our team of Cadet Officers who made the event possible, with the support of our Cadet Auxiliary who provided a wonderful breakfast to all of those who attended. 

In addition to the Dawn Service, last Wednesday we also held a special ANZAC Day Assembly, when we took time to reflect and honour the sacrifice of those who fought in the First World War. We particularly remembered those past students of our School who lost their lives while serving our country. Mr John Allen delivered a powerful address about his father, a veteran of World War II and the vital role that legacy has played in his life. Mr Hamish Green read out the names of the fallen Grammarians and as each name was read, a member of our Cadet Unit came forward to stand in silent tribute. It was a poignant reminder of the loss that the School community suffered at the time.
