In the morning, we remembered them

By OBHS | Posted: Sunday April 23, 2023

On Monday morning the entire school and guests took part in our annual ANZAC service.

The Rector welcomed students and special guests before Head Boy, Simi Puni read the Spirit of ANZAC. Guest speaker, George Davis CGMM, PhD addressed the assembly and Year 9 student Tristin Clark read the Binyon extract. Deputy Head Boy, Matthew Bolter along with Head of School House, Hamish Leyser shared in the reading of the names of OBHS old boys who died at Gallipoli from the Book of Remembrance.

At the end of the service the students lined the path to the archway where wreaths and poppies were laid. Year 9 students placed 36 crosses representing our fallen. The school bell tolled 36 times in remembrance of our old boys from the Gallipoli campaign. 

We will remember them.
