Centenary of ANZACPrint Page Print this page


Photographs supplied by Father Ted Doncaster / Sally McGilvray

The courtyard and pergola commemorate the centenary of the ANZAC (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) landings at Gallipoli in Turkey in April 1915 during World War One.   

The Centenary also commemorates those who have served in the various conflicts after World War One in which Australia has been involved.

The Rosalie Primary School has a long association with the local 11th Battalion (now the 11 / 28th Battalion). The school colours of brown and blue are significant as these were the colours of the 11th Battalion (The City of Perth Regiment). It is believed the school adopted the colours of the 11th in recognition of, and respect for, their Head Teacher (Harry Naylor) who lost his life in World War One while serving as a member of the 11th Battalion. It is highly likely that children attending school around this time also had family connections with the City of Perth Regiment.

Funding was received for the project through the ANZAC Centenary Grants Program.

The Ode

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old :
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

Lest We Forget
