ANZAC Day Dawn Service

Submitted by on Thu 03/05/18 13:50

A slight drizzle did not deter members of the community gathering at the IAS Memorial Stone to honour and remember the brave World War 1 men and women during the ANZAC Day Dawn Service.
A stirring commemorative address was given by Flying Officer Ewan Haig from the Royal Australian Air Force with special guests Councillor Cheryl Bromage and State Parliament Member Jim Madden laying wreaths.

IAS choir and students accompanied Mrs Trost in singing the National Australian Anthem and hymn during the service while school leaders Gary and Katerina read The Ode and laid a wreath respectively, representing the school students.

Anzac Day is celebrated once a year, remembering the thousands of Australian and New Zealand lives given by men and women on battlefields around the world.  The parallel can be made between the sacrifice made by the Anzacs for our bodies and the sacrifice Jesus Christ made for our souls – both were made to provide freedom.

“Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:13

Thank you to the Ipswich Adventist Church for suppling the sound and lighting, breakfast and seating for the service. Together the Ipswich Adventist School with Ipswich Adventist Church would like to thank all who attended and remembered our ANZACS.  Lest We Forget.
