ANZAC Day parade

Each year St Joseph's school are invited to march in the ANZAC day parade in our local main street.

Each year since we arrived here in Australia we have brought our kids to this parade dressed in full school uniform so that they can be a part of it.

Until this ANZAC day we weren't Australian citizens, we didn't have family members in the Australian armed forces, we weren't marching to commemorate a particular person. But still we marched. We chose to move to this country, a country with so much to offer our family, the chance of a great future for our kids, the freedom to live a happy life in safe surroundings. So many people fought hard for this freedom that we are benefitting from. We owe it them to march side by side with our Australian friends. Especially when this year we march as Australian Citizens.

Lest We Forget.
