THE legacy of the Anzacs has stood the test of time and remains in safe hands for the future.

As the Coffs Coast solemnly marks the sacrifice of war today, words of remembrance, gratitude and national pride will continue to ring true for younger generations.

Ahead of today's commemorations marking the 97th anniversary of the Gallipoli campaign, Orara High School students paused to remember the significance of Anzac Day.

Demonstrating the link between the classroom and the future frontlines of national service, former student Sapper Maureen Woods explained her role as an Afghanistan war veteran.

"My deployment lasted eight months, I am commonly asked was there a difference between males and females on a military base in a war zone and I say no, in military life everyone is a soldier," Sapper Woods said.

Member for Cowper Luke Hartsuyker called on younger generations to embrace the Anzac legend and continue the legacy.

"It is up to you to carry forward the strength of the Anzac tradition," Mr Hartsuyker said.
