ANZAC Day 2015

2015 ANZAC Commemorations
Local schools have been invited to participate in the Kaiapoi ANZAC commemorations on Saturday 25th April.
Children will meet by the tennis courts in Sewell St at 9.30 a.m. and march to the cenotaph. A combined school choir (including the Kaiapoi schools, Woodend, Pegasus Bay, Tuahiwi and ourselves) will sing Sons of Gallipoli during the service.
If your child can commit to learning the song over the holidays and being part of the ANZAC service on Saturday 25th April, the words and music are attached.
Thank you,
Mark Ashmore-Smith
Principal

Sons of Gallipoli

We sang —God of Nations at thy feet—
As we stood on that sacred shore
With a heartfelt pride
Somewhere deep inside
For the sons of Gallipoli

We sang —E Ihowa Atua—
From the place they call Anzac Cove
We gazed out to sea
Where our home would be
For the sons of Gallipoli

How still you lie
And how still you die on other hillsides.
We sang —hear our voices we entreat—
As the wind blew from off the sea
With a tearful sigh and the question why
For the sons of Gallipoli

We sang —God defend our free land—
And for all whose lives are torn
With one voice implore
No more talk of war
For the sons of Gallipoli

We sang —God of Nations at thy feet—
As we stood on that sacred shore
With a heartfelt pride
Somewhere deep inside
For the sons of Gallipoli
