Today as we stand safe and free, clothed with the privileges and rights of free citizens, we give thanks and remember the ANZACS who gave so much.
We also remember those students and staff who once attended Bendigo High School and who sacrificed their lives for our freedom. We give thanks, we honour them and we will not forget.
It is a tradition of the college that each year the student body walks up the memorial steps as a gesture of respect in commemoration of the fallen, during the College ANZAC Day Ceremony.
The plaque at the bottom of the steps reads:
This Memorial is erected
To remind all who pass this way
Of those who served and
Suffered that our way of life
Might be preserved.
