Wednesday 24 April 2019 – 11:50am
BSSC’s ANZAC Day Ceremony is a long standing tradition and significant event for the college. It’s a time for students, staff, as well as members of the RSL and the wider community, including college Alumni, to come together and acknowledge all Australians and New Zealanders who served in wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations and remember the contribution they made and the suffering they endured.
The ceremony includes moving performances by BSSC musicians and this year’s special guest speaker will be Sergeant Glenn Ludeman, Company Sergeant Major for Charlie Company, 8th/7th Battalion, The Royal Victoria Regiment. Glenn’s operational service includes Bougainville, Papua New Guinea in 2000, East Timor in 2001 with the United Nations, Timor Leste in 2007 and tours of Afghanistan in 2009—2010 and more recently 2012–2013. He has been awarded a Commanding Officer Commendation, a Soldiers Medallion for Exemplary Service and an Australia Day Medallion for his Australian Defence Force service.
Note for students:
This is the first Wednesday of term. There is an altered timetable for the day as follows:
To save congestion and enable prompt assembly of students, we would like all classes leaving their respective buildings to follow these directions:
- “D”, “E”, “G” and Language Centre students to enter via the old gaol gates entrance
- “C”, Multimedia , JKH, TTC and “B” enter via the canteen doors
No bags, food or drink will be allowed in the theatre so please leave your bags in your lockers or classrooms.
All mobile phones need to be switched off and hats may not be worn in respect to the diggers.
Please fill all seats at the front areas of the theatre, to allow seating for all students. Ensure that you move along to the middle seats at both ends to ensure that every seat is used. Student Leadership Team members will be directing you into seats.
At the conclusion of the ceremony, you will be invited to take part in a long standing tradition, which is the walk up the college front steps—a tradition that has continued for much of the life of our school. We are looking forward to celebrating this historic event as a college community.
Lest we forget.
