Bossley Park Public School celebrates Anzac spirit

Bossley Park Public School used their Anzac Day service on Monday to honour the animals that have supported service people in war.

Corporal McIntyre from the school of military engineering recounted to pupils about his service and working with bomb detection dogs while principal Tracey Betts spoke about Simpson and his donkey.

The school's garden was covered in red and purple poppies to signify the animals and the service personnel. All the poppies were made by assistant principal Judith Birkett and her mum Norma.

"Lance Corporal Mitten played the Last Post and The Rouse beautifully. It brought goosebumps to all of us. We were so incredibly lucky to have the official party that we did. It is so nice to have both army and police support. It just makes the service so special and it has a bigger impact on the students," Ms Birkett said.

"At Bossley Park Public School the Anzac spirit is definitely alive."
