ANZAC Day is a public holiday that is celebrated every year on the 25th of April in honour of the Australian and New Zealand troops who gave their lives for their country on the battle field in World War I and other significant wars.
A common tradition of ANZAC Day is a parade in which the main street of towns all over Australia is blocked off to traffic and many groups from the community march in memory of those who worked to make Australia the free nation that it is today.
As a group from the community, St Joseph's High School, Aberdeen participates in the ANZAC Day march. A group of students from each town in the area volunteer their time to march in their respective town's parade. Students from all years
march in the parade, led by Year 12 leaders. It is a prime opportunity for the school to show off their community and ANZAC spirit.
