ANZAC Day 2017
Internationally and locally, our students attended services to commemorate ANZAC Day, being wonderful ambassadors for HVGS.
Our School Captains, Liam and Tori, were involved in East Maitland Dawn Service and spoke about the true meaning of Anzac Day, it's importance within society and the role that everyone can play in remembering those who defended our country and our Allies. They laid a wreath on behalf of HVGS to pay our sincerest respects to the fallen.
"It was a privilege to attend the Dawn Service at East Maitland and speak alongside special guests, MP Jenny Aitchison, Archdeacon David John Battrick BSG, Lieutenant Thomas Hartley as well as the members of the Maitland community. We hope that as we grow older, the memory of the ANZACS endures; ANZAC Day is a special day for remembering all service personnel, especially those who lost their lives in battle."
Our Junior School leaders attended the 11am memorial service at Maitland Park.
Dawn Service on the Western Front. Our European travellers represented Hunter Valley Grammar School at the ANZAC Dawn Service at Villers-Bretonneux. This year our school joined record numbers who witnessed the moving and memorable ceremony in chilly conditions. Our students laid a wreath in tribute to our servicemen; you may have heard Mr Greg Robinson – one of the tour co-ordinators announced on the ABC Broadcast.
A 1:30 am start, and a visit to the Victoria School and its museum honouring Australia’s involvement afterwards, made for a long day, but they were all very aware that it was nothing compared to what our soldiers endured. No doubt the memories of this experience will stay with them forever.

K-12 Clean up
Thousands of schools clean up across Australia! K-12 students were eager to join the thousands of students across Australia as part of Clean up Australia Day on Friday 3 March. Every inch of our campus and the perimeter was picked over by our willing helpers.
In 1989 Ian Kiernan had a simple idea to make a difference in his own backyard - Sydney Harbour. This simple idea has now become the nation's largest community-based environmental event, Clean Up Australia Day.
By being involved we are helping our kids appreciate the significant responsibility we have to do something ourselves to help protect and care for their environment.
These young people aren’t afraid to lead and they represent themselves, their families, and our school with great pride. At HVGS our students benefit from striving for high standards and from an education that is anchored in our School’s Values for Life.
