Anzac Day

Anzac Day is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand, originally commemorated by both countries on 25 April every year to honour the members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli in the Ottoman Empire during World War I.

For My Fellow Ausies... Just saw a post by a guy saying anyone who celebrates Australia Day or Anzac Day is a racist. Okay, so you come to MY country and you don't want to accept the Australian way of life and you speak trash about the men and women who fought for our freedom. We'll guess what? Last time I checked, Australia has LOTS of airports. And if you don't like it, you are more than free to go catch one - the sooner the better. I will never understand the mentality of people who come to live in ANY nation but are filled with a lack of respect towards or hatred for a country that has opened its doors to them. Try expressing your 'freedoms' in the land you came from. The news is filled with the 'tolerance' shown there.

Preview: Roosters v Dragons Allianz Stadium Saturday 7.30 pm It's the question that has plagued mankind since Paul McGregor had hair. If Captain America and Iron Man traded fighting super-powered Nazi soldiers and megalomaniac invaders from outer space for the intricacies of the 13-man code – obstruction rule, halftime oranges, Tommy Raudonikis and all – who would win? Super hero bragging rights and two pretty vital competition points go on the line as Anthony Minichiello defies that strong Italian heritage to lead the Roosters – resplendent in their Captain America get-up – into battle against the iron-clad Iron Men of St George Illawarra for a Round 21 clash with a novel twist. Both sides will be donning ISC Marvel-themed jumpers come Saturday night, and a spot of Hollywood-style revenge should be on the Dragons' tip sheet given the pantsing the Roosters pulled on them back on Anzac Day – a 34-14 drubbing that started the defensive rot that worryingly had them conceding just under 26 points a ...

Dear Members Just a quick reminder that there IS training on this weekend and Monday across ALL 4 training centres despite the local holiday in some regions. Next weekend however we will be CLOSED for the entire weekend due to the nationally gazetted "Queens Birthday Public Holiday" long weekend. Training will then resume again as of Saturday 14th June at Kawana & Kedron and then at each centre thereafter as usual. We DO NOT close centres, as a rule, for the 'local show day' holidays as this is too difficult to manage across the regions. We DO close centres, as a rule, for nationally gazetted public holidays: Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Years Day, Australia Day, Good Friday, Easter Monday, Anzac Day, Queens Birthday & Labour Day, where it affects the weekend on which the centres operate. This year we opened centres the day after Anzac Day despite it being like a 'Long Weekend' simply due to the Easter School holiday period this year and how it fell. Of course we will always announce this in classes in ...

“When the wheels hit the gravel road and if feels like home”, that line resonates with me and every single time I drive over the grate into the family farm that song plays in my head. About20 klms south west from Jindabyne, NSW the bitumen turns to gravel, drive a further 7 klms along a steep winding road you will find the farm.  If you look out as you drive down the gap, you can see why the region is called the high country, as on a clear day you could almost see Melbourne, hundreds of klms away, but I don’t suggest you take the eyes off the road as you will find yourself down a 90 degree drop driving towards a great white light and a welcome from St Peter. At18 I joined the Army Reserve, and then at 21 I married a Navy man. Anzac Day tome is more special than any day of the year.  So when I hear Lee Kernaghan state that the people he respects most in our country are soldiers and farmers you can clearly see why in my head he is talking about me, to me. I am about to go to a Lee Kernaghan concert, ...
Vision: SGT Ray Vance in Afghanistan On 25 April 2014 Australian, New Zealand, Turkish and other Coalition military members currently deployed in Kabul, Afghanistan gathered together at dawn to pause and reflect on Anzac Day. A moving dawn service was conducted at the Kabul International Airport-North military base involving an Australian and New Zealand combined catafalque party and incorporating senior military representation from Australia, New Zealand, Turkey, United Kingdom, France and United States. Major General David Coghlan, AM, provided a key note address as the Senior Australian Defence Force Officer which highlighted the importance of also reflecting on those that had fallen whilst serving in the Middle East Area of Operations. Following the service, members enjoyed a combined breakfast and a friendly game of touch football between nations.

Hello lovely ladies, Have you enjoyed your 2 long weekends catching up with all your friends and family? I know, I did!

Greedy *** .. Make an example of these *** they purposely hid the fish so they knew the rules. - Snapper stash could lead to charges Three Auckland fishermen could be in deep water after fisheries officers found more than 200 snapper stashed under their boat's floorboards. A Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) spokesman said the three men - aged 33, 38 and 39 - could face serious charges. The large stash of snapper was found during a routine inspection of fishing boats at Kawakawa Bay, southeast of Auckland, on Anzac Day. Of the 234 snapper found on board, 114 were under size. Compliance officers seized the men's boat, trailer and car. MPI North Harbour district compliance manager Michael Simmons said the fisheries officers did a great job to find the fish. "The blatant disregard for both the size and quantity of illegal fish taken by these fishermen places a huge strain on the survival of the snapper fishery." Fisheries officers also caught four shellfish gatherers with 1016 cockles at Kawakawa ...
AUD/USD Weekly Fundamental Analysis April 28 – May 2, 2014 Forecast The AUD/USD dipped this week as troubles brewing in China weighed on the currency. The Aussie ended the week at 0.9283 after touching a weekly of 0.9377 before Chinese data was released. The calendar has been kind to Aussie workers this year, with the Easter and Anzac Day long weekends falling within a 10-day period. For many, the prospect of having 10 days off for the price of three was too tempting. Many Aussie workers are taking Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday as annual leave this week and getting themselves a great holiday deal. And why wouldn’t you, with the weather so enticing? There are good things in store for those hardworking individuals who are keeping the economy going too. The roads are empty and you can get a seat on the trains. The car park at the Easter show is full though. On Friday, the Australian dollar was trading at 92.62 US cents, down from 92.95 on Thursday. On Wednesday, the Aussie initially fell half a US cen ...
What Future for Generations Y & Z Each year I have the privilege of being invited to speak at the closing ceremony of the United Nations Youth Declaration. It is an audience of around 200 secondary and tertiary students who gather for four days to discuss and debate social, economic and political issues. At the end they produce a summary of their deliberations, the Youth Declaration. Each year it is a fantastic group – committed, energised and passionate about making a difference in the world. I come away from it every time feeling I have gained more than I have given. This year, the introductory quote setting the theme for the conference was from Anne Frank: “How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world”. The audience is diverse and multicultural and committed to making New Zealand a better place for all who live in it. It gives me enormous confidence that our future is in good hands! I spoke the day after Anzac Day, acknowledging our debt to th ...

In separate incidents last night, police charged two men and two women with mid range PCA, all four with children in their vehicles. Operation ‘Go Slow,’ which started at 12.01am Thursday 24 April 2014 and continues until 11.59pm today (Sunday 27 April 2014), includes double demerits for speeding, seatbelt, and motorcycle-helmet offences. Officers will be a highly-visible presence on the roads as part of a two-week traffic blitz encompassing Easter, Anzac Day and the school holidays – where drivers are being urged to ‘make their trip count’ to ensure they don’t become a statistic. About 5.10pm (Saturday 26 April 2014), officers from Blacktown Traffic and Highway Patrol Command stopped a Holden Captiva for RBT on Sackville Street, Blacktown. The driver, a 33-year-old man was breath tested and returned a positive result. There were five passengers in the car a woman and four children under the age of nine. Three of the children were unrestrained. The man was arrested and taken to Blacktown Polic ...

Seems to be a culture of getting completely maggoted on Anzac Day. Why is that considered the best way to commemorate our fallen soldiers?

I went to circo loco yesterday for Anzac Day
Over the years I have been lucky enough to sing as part of the Anzac Day memorial service at Saint Mary's Cathedral in Sydney. Every year i was privileged to sing with the Navy, Army and Air Force bands. I also met some very interesting people, including soldiers past and present. The one who stands out the most is Norm, a 93 year old man who served Australia during WWII. For someone who had seen so much horror, he was one of the kindest men I've met. Every year, since I moved away from Australia, I think of Norm on Anzac Day and am glad I had the chance to thank him for his service to out country. To all those, past and present, who give up their freedom so we may have ours, thank you. "They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old; Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them. Lest we forget"

I trust you all had a lovely Easter break. We welcomed five new children into school this week, Izzy, Toby, Joshua, Sophia and Hugo. They seem to have settled well into their new classes. Mrs Carpenter also started work here as a Teaching Assistant, whilst Mrs Baker is on maternity leave. No news yet on the baby. On a wet Friday morning, Wylye Valley School, walked up to St Marys Church for our annual Anzac Day service. What a treat to be greeted by a real Kiwi, Bill, dressed in his military costume. The children read out the Anzac alphabet and sang ‘Make Me a Channel of Your Peace’ and ‘We Will Remember.’ Bill and his family joined us in church. Holly read out a WW1 poem before we went out to the Anzac graves, where every child observed a one minute silence and placed rosemary on the grave as a symbol of remembrance. Bill applauded the children as they walked back down the lane to school. Our topic this term is ‘Take one Village’ and on Tuesday, Laurel from Swindon and Wiltshire History Centr ...
THE 26TH OF APRIL The 26th of April, is a day remembered here in the Pa o nga Ariki, when in 1940 the heart of Te Urumanao Ratana stopped and her spirit returned to Heaven. It follows Anzac Day, when the Nation remembers the fallen soldiers. It’s the day we remember a mother ‘Te Whaea o te Kaota.’ The name she was given by the Holy Spirit. Te Urumanao came from the south Taranaki tribe of Ngarauru in the Patea region and also Pakeha decent. She belong to the Ngapaki family or Baker family, and her father was a minister in the Methodist Church, so she was familiar with the teachings of the church and had a keen interest in the Bible. As a young woman, she was to marry Tahupotiki Wiremu Ratana, and after their marriage moved to the Ratana family homestead known as Orakeinui. There at Orakeinui they intended to raise a family. While T.W.Ratana worked on the farm, she raised their children, Tokouru, Rawinia, Maata and Pikihuia. They had been staying on the farm for over 15 years, when strange happenings ...
April 25, 1916 – Anzac Day is commemorated for the first time on the first anniversary of the landing at Anzac Cove.
Anzac Day l watched four Memorial services. Canberra,Gallipoli,France and Lone pine to honour all fallen Soldiers and l came up with one conclusion. Stupid. Bloody. War. No one wins and everybody loses. May God bring peace to each and everyone of us in this world and to live together as one. AMEN. LEST WE FORGET
Make your remembrance this year actually result in something significant. Share this with your local member, post it on his wall. Here is what Papuans did for Australians in the second world war. Let's reciprocate: As one Australian digger has noted: "“They carried stretchers over seemingly impassable barriers, with the patient reasonably comfortable. The care they give to the patient is magnificent. If night finds the stretcher still on the track, they will find a level spot and build a shelter over the patient. They will make him as comfortable as possible fetch him water and feed him if food is available, regardless of their own needs. They sleep four each side of the stretcher and if the patient moves or requires any attention during the night, this is given instantly. These were the deeds of the ‘Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels’ – for Australian." . Message to the Australian People and Australian Prime minister on Anzac Day. From the Alliance of Papuan Students (AMP). "To the Prime Minister, Tony Abbot, a ...
What an overwhelming and powerful experience to campout in Gallipoli on Anzac Cove on Anzac Day, to walk in their footsteps and stand in there trenches you can really get a grasp on wat they endured. Very surreal and highly recommended
COLLINGWOOD bringing home the Anzac Day game!
Today on Anzac Day we remember all those brave men and women who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations and the contribution and suffering of all those who have served. I'm also reminded of our boy RAFFLES PEGASUS (FUSAICHI PEGASUS x FANFARES) brave win of the ANZAC DAY STAKES in 2011 at Flemington Racecourse and Victoria Racing Club. He is now racing in Malaysia and was a winner for us last week at Perak Turf Club, he's such a good boy.
Wow, what a day at World Cup Downhill round 2 Cairns for the Qualifying race to determine the Top 80 Elite Male riders who will contest the ultimate race tomorrow. So stoked to post that at his second only World Cup event (first in 2011) Ben gave an Old Digger (me!) the ultimate Anzac Day present by qualifying in 65th position (from 124 riders)! The track was an absolute mess with rain continuing in bucket loads overnight and into the morning with mud resembling peanut butter, slippery rocks, roots and trees which seemed to jump onto the track! However; unlike his earlier practice runs today where he crashed multiple times Ben held it together for the all important race run. Been a *** of a time cleaning, repairing and servicing the Santa Cruz v10 this afternoon but now all is in readiness to do it again tomorrow! Now to bed for a good sleep before getting it on again tomorrow in the main race - check SBS for live TV coverage!!
Had a great Anzac Day with the extended Ausi family! Party again tomorrow! And a great phone call from my wolf pack back home enjoy Benidorm boys!
What has Anzac Day got to do with Julia Gillard?
Ben Te'o is almost certain to leave the South Sydney Rabbitohs after the New Zealand Warriors joined the French rugby clubs chasing his services with an offer worth $650,000 a season. Te'o is officially a free agent after he declined to take up an option in his contract for a third year at the Rabbitohs next year. The Queensland Origin forward has told teammates he won't be staying and that he is likely to sign with a French rugby club. However, the Warriors' offer could be a wildcard after the Brisbane Broncos – the team Te'o faces at Suncorp Stadium on Anzac Day – all but ruled out a return. Souths have already made contingency plans, signing Manly back-rower Glenn Stewart. The Rabbitohs have also secured Penrith prop Tim Grant as a replacement for rugby-bound Sam Burgess.
