Students and staff enjoy the ANZAC March.

The Parkview Community has paid a respectful tribute to the ANZACs at two distinct commemorations across the weekend.

Over 350 students, staff and  community members gathered at school to share in a special ANZAC Assembly hosted by our School Captains in the COLA adjacent to the school flag poles on ANZAC Eve. Our School Leaders provided a wonderful account of the spirit of the ANZACs and provided some great explanations for students linked to the ANZAC tradition.

ANZAC Day (Saturday) was a day of significant national pride and emotion as we observed 100 years of the ANZAC tradition. The growing significance of the occasion was re-inforced by the record numbers of Parkview students (and families) who attended and marched in the Leeton ANZAC Observance.

In total over 160 students and 20 staff represented our school whilst many more children, staff and community members represented other community entities in this most significant occasion, joining thousands of Leetonians in the annual ANZAC Observance.

Thanks is extended to everyone who braved the impending poor weather to salute our courageous servicemen and women.
