Nagle is state runner-up in 2018 ANZAC Day School’s Awards

Nagle College has a long tradition of student involvement, across a number of learning areas, in the annual ANZAC Service and Gift ceremony. This year over 60 students contributed to the ceremony through readings and music. It was for this reason  Minister for Veterans’ Affairs and Member for Gippsland Darren Chester announced Nagle College as State runner-up in this year’s ANZAC Day School’s Award.

As part of their application, Nagle compiled a collection of short videos and photos taken by members of Nagle College’s Year 10 Media class on April 24 at the Nagle College ANZAC ceremony. Accompanying this video are two original songs; the first written and performed by Samantha Graham titled “Never in the war”, the second written by Roni Corby and performed by Roni Corby (ukulele, vocals), Cait Corby (cello) and Mariah Havey (harmony vocals). The entry is available to watch on YouTube.

 “I would like to congratulate Nagle College for its exceptional entry into the Anzac Day Schools’ competition,” Mr Chester said. “Judges were impressed with the high level of student involvement across year levels and key subject areas when coordinating its 2018 Anzac Day ceremony.”

Nagle College will be awarded $500 and a plaque for its project commemorating the service and sacrifice of our veterans over the past century.
