HENTY Public and St Paul’s primary schools are preparing to break their holidays to march in the Anzac Day ceremonies on April 25 starting at 10.30am.

Henty Public school held a short Anzac service last Thursday, 6th April at 9.30am.

The year 6 students led the service and were joined by three visiting RSL members for morning tea and a catch up afterwards.

The purpose of the service is to honour the sacrifice by all serving personnel, past and present, and to raise awareness among all students of the importance of the Anzac tradition.
