Esperance school ANZAC ceremony

Castletown Primary School held a whole school assembly to honour the sacrifice of the ANZAC on Thursday, April 12.

Acting principal Ash Weckert said the school had focused on the importance of ANZAC day and had involved the students in directing and preparing the assembly.

“Our deputy Nicola Rose has led our student leaders in preparing to run the assembly,” he said.

“So our students had quite a bit of responsibility today.”

The ANZAC service included a performance by the school’s senior choir, which was led by music specialist teacher Kathy Stevens.

The ceremony included a guest speaker from  the 10th Light Horse brigade who gave a presentation and spoke about her experiences.

“We then had our head boy and our head girl and two Year 1 students lay the wreath,” Mr Weckert said.

“We had our whole school from pre-primary up to Year 6 today and a good turnout of parents as well.” 

The assembly concluded with a presentation of outstanding achievement awards.
