As is customary, the school leaders from Coleambally Central School addressed the crowd at the Anzac Day ceremony on Monday, to share their thoughts on what the day means to them.
This year it was Michael Connor and Pat Bowditch who were given the honour.
"We are here to commemorate one of the most significant events of our nation,” Michael said.
“Because of these men and women's actions over 100 years ago, young Australians like us get to say that we've lived our lives in Australia with freedom.”
Pat reminded the younger generation of the day’s significance. “I think the younger generation sometimes finds it difficult to understand why we commemorate an event that happened over 100 years ago,” he said.
“We commemorate Anzac Day not because of the battles fought, instead, today is about honouring those that have sacrificed so much. Our generation commemorates Anzac Day, not to glorify war but rather in recognition of those that gave their lives so that today, we can live in a free and prosperous country.”
