In the western suburbs, various schools chose to host an Anzac Day ceremony before the school holiday break to allow students, staff and parents to take part in the special community event.

Dalkeith Primary principal Lisa Tucker said the Anzac Day celebration was the most significant event of the year because it affected the whole school community. Students donned red poppies on their school uniforms and laid wreaths at the base of the school flagpole before pausing for a moment’s silence to remember the fallen.

Curtin MHR Julie Bishop attended the school’s ceremony, which was held on the same day she officially opened applications for funding from the Anzac Centenary local grant program.
