The ANZAC Day Service is a long-standing St Andrew’s College tradition, which is held each year in the Centennial Chapel. We commemorate those who lost their lives in war, particularly Old Collegians and Staff who died during WWII, as well as honouring returned servicemen and women.

All Old Collegians are very welcome to attend this special service on Tuesday 25 April, at 10.00am (in person or online) with those attending onsite joining us for morning tea in the Strowan House dining room afterwards.

For those who attend in person, this will take place in the St Andrew’s College Centennial Chapel. 

Please email if you intend to come. for catering purposes. There is no cost to attend and no need to send an apology if you are unable to make it.

For those of you unable to attend in person, we will be live streaming this special service. We hope, wherever in the world you may be, you can join us online to remember our fallen.

Please click the link below to view the live stream at 10.00am on ANZAC Day. This will also be available to view after the service.
