Trinity News : July 2008
The noise of planes from the airport was not as loud as on other Anzac Ceremonies around the Quad, and by the same token, the bird songs seemed louder and more cheerful, and the sunshine brighter! Perhaps this could be interpreted as a sign that though wars and rumours of wars are often heard, the hope for a lasting peace is never diminished. Our Annual Anzac ceremony held around the Quad on April 11, the last day of Term One, was a dignified and solemn remembrance of those of our School who have given their lives in the wars of the last century. The marching on of the Catafalque Party, the turning of the page of the Book of Remembrance, the reading of the Ode to the Fallen, the singing by the School, accompanied by the Band, of Oh God, our Help in Ages Past, and especially the reading out of the names of our Trinity men and placing of the crosses honouring them were all done with a quiet poignancy in which thankfulness for their sacrifice, and the need for us to build on that sacrifice, were once again etched on our consciousness. | Ron Ogier Remembrance ANZAC As well as the Ceremony at School, our Cadets provide a valuable service to the community at large in that they provide Catafalque Parties, Flag Parties and Honour Guards for various RSL services throughout the district, while the School Band also marched in the main Anzac Parade in the City on Anzac Day. We are grateful indeed to all the young men who were involved in theses activities, and appreciate the excellence of their participation. The Cadets were privileged to serve at the following services: Burwood Park, Drummoyne RSL, Ashfield Park and St Thomas’ Enfield, and the Legacy rosemary distribution in the City for the ANZAC Day City March. The efforts of the cadets involved were very positively received and commented on at each occasion, which only underscores the importance of their service to the community at this significant time in the life of Australian communities each year. Well done to all Cadets involved in these commemorations. | MAJ (AAC) Tim Barden main image: Memorial Crosses on the Quad insert images from left: 1 The Marching Band waiting to move off during the City Anzac March 2 Old Boys at the Quad Anzac Service 3 Our Honour Guard at Burwood RSL Service 4 Our Catafalque Party at Burwood Anzac Service 5 The Trinity Flag Party at Drummoyne RSL TRINITY NEWS 15 Anzac Day March and Dawn Service – Campsie RSL 25 April Wednesday at 06:30am – Beamish Street, Campsie A long standing and proud tradition of 3rd Summer Hill (Trinity Grammar) Scout Group has been to participate in the Dawn Service and March on Anzac Day at Campsie along with other District Scouts. The Campsie Anzac Day Dawn Service is a well attended march, one of the biggest in the western suburbs. Anzac Day this year was very well supported by Trinity Scouts. On a very cold miserable Anzac Day morning, our Cubs and Scouts met at Campsie to support the march held by Campsie RSL. Our Trinity boys, proudly display- ing the Trinity Scout Flag, marched with the Diggers along Beamish Street and then participated in the Anzac Service at Anzac Mall. All Trinitarians should be proud of our Trinity Scouts display of support, participation and presentation on Anzac Day – congratulations to all boys and their families for their attendance.
