The ANZAC Service at El Arish State School on Monday, 24th April 2023, was a poignant and heartfelt tribute to honor the sacrifices made by the Australian and New Zealand soldiers during World War I. The school grounds were filled with a solemn atmosphere as students, staff, and community members gathered to pay their respects. The ceremony commenced with the playing of the Last Post, its haunting melody echoing through the air, evoking a sense of remembrance and reflection.

The wreath laid at the memorial honours the students of El Arish State school who attended WW2 and was laid on behalf of the F.P.Martin family symbolizing gratitude and reverence. The service served as a powerful reminder of the values of sacrifice, courage, and unity that continue to resonate with the El Arish community and beyond, as we honor the ANZAC spirit and the legacy it has left for generations to come.
