Around 30 students, our Senior Leadership Team and Staff took part in ANZAC Day service at Stockade Hill. 

 

Samuel Scanlan won the RSA's ANZAC poetry competition and he read his poem eloquently at the Stockade Hill Dawn Service.

Lay Down My Brother
By Samuel Scanlan

Lay down my dear brother, lay down for rest,
Lay down your once bruised chest,
For once we were at war,
But now we are at peace,
Lest we forget,


Throughout all the day you fought so hard,
But take a rest, for your head is now scared,
You lie in peace, for here on forward,
And now you are honored,
Lest we forget.


For here now, you lie in peace
On the hilltops in our land,
And on the soft sandy beach,
Where you first arrived on the sand,

Lest we forget,

Once we were frightened,and we were scared,
But be troubled no more, for now you are cared,
On the hills, fighting to take control,
But now there is peace for all,
Lest we forget,

The cross symbolizes where you are laid,
Where brothers had now been made,
And the fighting shall be no more,
From the troubling hills, to the soft sea shore,

Lest we forget.

When letters were sent, letters of love,
We give you a letter, that is a dove,

For now, your once wounded brothers and friends,
Now lies in peace, with no end,
Lest we forget.

The poppies were planted were you lie,
To let us sit next to you, and sigh.
We look back, and see fighting and war,

But now we are brothers, and the war is no more,

Lest we forget

Lay down my brother, lay down for rest,
Lay down your once bruised chest,
For once we were at war,
But now we are at peace,
And we will forever say, LEST WE FORGET
