Welcome to TAS
What's on at TAS
This year’s 100th anniversary of ANZAC Day is to be commemorated by the whole school on the day – 25 April 2015. This year ANZAC Day falls on the Saturday at the end of Week 1 Term 2. The whole school is to be in attendance at our 7.00am commemorative service outside the Memorial Hall where we remember the 103 fallen Old Boys and staff and many others whom served our nation in time of war and peace. We are very fortunate to have long time supporter of TAS Major General Iain Spence, Head of Cadets Reserves and Employer Support Division, as our invited guest to speak at the service. Our 16 man ceremonial guard will form the catafalque party for the ceremony. The service will be followed by a Eucharist Service in the Memorial Hall.
At 8.30am our ceremonial guard will form the catafalque party at the Dangarsleigh War Memorial Service.
At 11.00am the whole cadet unit (A, B, C Coy, Q Store and Signals Platoon) will march in the Armidale City Anzac Day Service. The unit’s ceremonial guard will form the catafalque party at the service in Central Park. The remainder of the school will attend the service in Central Park from 11.00am.
Anzac Day goes beyond the anniversary of the landing on Gallipoli in 1915. It is the day on which we remember Australians who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations. The spirit of Anzac, with its human qualities of courage, mateship, and sacrifice, continues to have meaning and relevance for our sense of national identity.
Your support of this most significant occasion is greatly appreciated.
