ANZAC Day 2018

The Centenary of ANZAC 2014 to 2018 is Australia’s most important period of national commemoration. Marking 100 years since our involvement in the First World War, the ANZAC Centenary is a time to honour the service and sacrifice of our original ANZACs, and the generations of Australian servicemen and women who have defended our values and freedoms, in wars, conflicts and peace operations throughout a Century of Service.

One of the most important legacies that can come from the ANZAC Centenary is to improve community understanding and awareness of our wartime history, particularly for younger Australians. The ANZAC Centenary gives families, schools and communities an opportunity to start important conversations that continue long after the national program has concluded, and in doing so ensuring an enduring and unifying legacy for current and future generations.

C.ex Group is proud to be a long term supporter of the Coffs Harbour RSL Sub Branch, the Fitzroy Barracks Coffs Harbour and partner of the ANZAC Day School Initiative.

ANZAC Day Schedule 2018:

 

“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.”
