With Anzac services cancelled for the weekend, Wallerawang Public School felt the need to commemorate with its staff, students and broader community.
On Friday, April 23 students, staff and parents gathered in the school hall to pay their respects to the fallen and those who served with a morning ceremony.
Students spoke of the importance of Anzac Day and how the community could commemorate.
Principal Jenny Lamborn addressed the assembly and told a story close to her heart about her father Gorden William O'Brien who served in World War II.
In 2020 on the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II Ms Lamborn made an application to receive her dad's medals for his service with the Australian Defence Force.
She wore them for the very first time at the school ceremony.
The school also invited Tiger Feltham to speak and read a book to the students.
Mr Feltham's family has donated books to Wallerawang Public School for over 20 years.
He then presented a number of books to the school captains.
Students shared what Anzac Day meant to them before the ceremony concluded with The Ode, The Last Post and the National Anthem.
