Join thousands of other students in keeping the ANZAC Spirit alive by commemorating the centenary of ANZAC and the sacrificies made by men and women who have served our country.

The Honourable Linda Dessau AC, Governor of Victoria will address the students and the ceremony will include Defence Force Cadets, school band & choir and a RAAF fly-over.

  • Students are encouraged to honour deceased relatives by wearing medals on their right hand side

  • As a symbol of remembrance, attendees will receive a sprig of rosemary

  • A program handed out on the day will outline the order of service

  • Two students from each school are invited to lay a floral tribute from their school during the ceremony (if bringing students from more than one year level then additional floral tributes can laid (max two per year level)

After this special Legacy service teachers and their students are invited inside the Shrine of Remembrance (via the Visitor Centre Courtyard) to view the Shrine Crypt and Galleries of Remembrance or lay a poppy at the Stone of Remembrance in the Sanctuary.
