St Nicholas pupils Heidi & Nicky travelled to London for ANZAC DAY, one of Australia’s and New Zealand’s most important national occasions, commemorating service and sacrifice.
The 2018 London commemorative service marks 103 years since the landing of Commonwealth Forces on the beaches of Gallipoli, during WW1.
The day began with a Dawn Service at the New Zealand War Memorial in Hyde Park, attended by HRH Prince Harry and Miss Meghan Markle.
Heidi & Nicky’s dad was the Australian Vigil Attendant, Heidi had the honour of reading a prayer in front of HRH and the two thousand strong crowd in attendance, Nicky and his Mum were front and centre in support.
The next event was a Cenotaph ceremony at the United Kingdom’s War Memorial in Whitehall. To conclude the day of remembrance, they attended the Annual Service of Commemoration and Thanksgiving at Westminster Abbey.
Once again the children were able to see Prince Harry and Prince William.
A huge honour for the family to be able to participate in Anzac Day events in London on behalf of their nation.
