Cadets carry on the ANZAC tradition
Published on: 28 April 2022
On Monday our Christ Church Grammar School Army Cadets proudly marched in the ANZAC Day parade on St George’s Terrace. Marking the 106th Anzac Day, the boys joined ex-service men and women, their families and community members in remembrance of the brave soldiers who served and died for our freedoms.
Earlier in March, two of our Army Cadet Senior Leaders, Harry Della-Vedova and Timothy Creed, laid a wreath at the Rats of Tobruk War Memorial in Kings Park.
Christ Church Grammar School Army Cadets have been the custodians of this memorial for 21 years. Each year the School’s Cadets host a small ceremony for relatives and veterans. Unfortunately, this year the School was unable to host the ceremony, so the Cadet Unit acknowledged the event and paid respects in quiet ceremony.
In Year 10, all boys participate in either Army Cadets, Surf Life Saving Cadets, or the Environment and Community program, teaching them important life skills such as service before self, confidence and self-discipline.
