Japara and Anzac Day

We’ve been overwhelmed by the beautiful Anzac Day ceremonies held at our homes across Australia over the past week.

At our South West Rocks aged care home in New South Wales, our residents hosted members of the local RSL branch who conducted the ceremony with the assistance of local student Isobel, the winner of her school’s writing competition on ‘What Anzac Day Means to Me’.

At our Wyong home in Mardi (NSW), residents, families and staff attended a lovely ceremony in the courtyard with local RSL member Bill Stewart, who recited the Ode for all in attendance.

It’s been wonderful to see the effort that our communities have put into their ceremonies, a clear reflection of what Anzac Day means to them.

Take a look at some more Anzac Day events and stories from our homes:
