To commemorate Anzac Day 2022 the members of Churchill Education share their reflections on this important day…
Randall ~ Founder & Director
Trent ~ Lead Recognition of Prior Learning Assessor (and Veteran)
To me the meaning of Anzac Day is with me all year round. For the nation however, the country stops and recognises the fallen and respects those who came home and are still suffering.
Anzac Day is a day in which I remember the mates I have lost due to service. Those I have served with from all over the globe.
I remember spending Anzac Day in Afghanistan with some of the greatest people I have ever met, as well as having a dawn service in a war zone side by side with soldiers from Turkey. The very nation we fought against on the shores of Gallipoli, the birthplace of the Anzac Spirit.
I think of those for whom the fight still goes on internally.
At dawn service during the silence, the sounds of the morning birds and the little children remind me why I joined, and I feel that is a shared emotion among all who have served. Not for medals or glory, not for heroic status that we give to movie stars and athletes, but for our country and its future, to know that we have done our part in continuing the Anzac Legacy.
I thank those who came before me. Who served to protect our nation, its interests and for the greater good of humanity.
Signing your name on the dotted line is something that is not done lightly and all those that have, are Anzacs.

ANZAC Day is a time to reflect and be grateful for all the men and women who served, are still serving and those who partook in other areas to look after our troops wellbeing and supplies, giving us the world we are lucky to continue to live in today.
Thank you for your service
To our serving defence personnel, veterans and families we say thank you for your service. Wherever you will be at dawn on 25 April, know that our gratitude and admiration is with you.
