Service men and women honoured: Despite Anzac Day services not allowed to be held due to COVID-19 restrictions, locals still found ways to pay their respects.

Camperdown College students Stella, Oliver and Lila Horspole marked Anzac Day at the end of their driveway this year.

St Pat’s principal Michael McKenzie with school captains held a modified school Anzac Day ceremony.

Wreaths were laid at Camperdown’s war memorials on Anzac Day.


Camperdown and district residents pay their respects

CAMPERDOWN and district residents paid their respects to soldiers in a variety of ways over the weekend. 

Due to COVID-19 regulations, the traditional Anzac Day service was unable to be held. 

Camperdown Returned and Services League (RSL) sub-branch president Alan Fleming said locals were still able to get involved in the annual appeal with a digital fundraising campaign launched ahead of Anzac Day. 

“It was a completely different Anzac Day, however it is heartening to hear reports of families standing in their driveway at 6am and to see many posts on social media sharing their experience,” he said.
