ALTHOUGH Anzac Day falls on a weekend this year, local schools are still doing their bit to honour the memory of those who fought for our country.
Yesterday Orara High School held their Anzac Day Memorial Service, supported by Army, Air Force, Navy and Air League Cadets, and the Coffs Harbour sub-branch of the Returned Services League.
“It really went exceptionally well,” Anzac Day co-ordinator Richard Braithwaite said.
“The Cadets took a lot of time to practise and to have them there on the day was wonderful, they should be proud.”
He said the students were respectful and enjoyed honouring those who fought so we could enjoy a free country.
“I’m always amazed by how well the student body responds and listens to what is being said,” he said.
“Our kids really know how to live up to a formal occasion and today they did it exceptionally well.”
