ANZAC Day Assembly

Robin Delamont (Defence School Mentor)

On Wednesday, our school community came together on the Avenue for a moving ANZAC Day Assembly, honouring the courage and sacrifice of our service personnel. The event, led by our students, was a heartfelt tribute to those who have served and continue to serve our country.

“I thought our ANZAC Assembly was amazing. It made me proud to be a defence student.” – Milly, Year 8

Kolbe’s ADF Cadets showcased their professionalism and marched beautifully under the leadership of Year 12 Army Cadet Fionna, embodying the spirit of service. We were honoured to have ABBM Duncan Watson, RAN (Kolbe Class of 2019), as our guest speaker. His words on resilience, service, and gratitude resonated deeply with everyone present. His grandfather, Ian Watson, played “Amazing Grace” on the bagpipes during the wreath-laying.

“I like our school’s ANZAC Assembly. It’s a chance for our ADF students to shine.” – Keeley, Year 12

It was heartwarming to see many of our ADF school parents in attendance, proudly wearing their uniforms. It is an important reminder to our students and staff that we are a defence school. Principal, Mr. Alweyn, asked our community to make an effort and say thank you or shake the hand of an ADF serving member or veteran on ANZAC Day.

Yesterday morning, our Defence School Mentor, Mrs. Robin Delamont, represented Kolbe at the City of Rockingham’s ANZAC Service, where our College Captains, Blake and Maris, presented a wreath on behalf of our school community. It was also great to see so many of our school ADF parents, cadets, and former students proudly marching in the ANZAC Parade.

“My Pop served in the ADF, and I know how important ANZAC Day is to him. I’m happy I was able to participate in the Rockingham Service.” – Blake, Year 12

Let us always remember and honour the sacrifices of our ANZACs. Lest we forget. 🌺
