Thu 23rd May
At 10.20am today, Townsville Grammar School students, staff and members of the community will gather at the North Ward campus to pay tribute to Past Grammarians who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect their country and loved ones.
This ANZAC commemoration ceremony, which has been a tradition at Townsville Grammar School since World War I, will be held in the School’s Quadrangle. School Captains, Luke Moran and Lauren Jones, will deliver the roll call of 60 Past Grammarians who gave their lives in service to our country.
Guest speaker Lt. Stuart Reed, will deliver an ANZAC address and the ceremony will be accompanied by the School’s symphony orchestra and Chamber Choir. Head Boarders, School Captains (Junior, Middle and Senior School) and guests, will be invited to place wreaths at the School’s War memorial.
Principal, Mr Richard Fairley, said this ceremony moves everyone who attends and is an event with a special place in the hearts of staff and students each year.
“It is not a celebration of war but a timely recognition of the service and supreme sacrifice made by our alumni.”
