ANZAC Commemorative Service
Anzac Service & Community Morning Tea
Each year Comet Bay College holds a commemorative ANZAC Service and Community Morning Tea for our school and local community.
Our 2017 service was held on Friday, 28th April in the presence of Her Excellency, The Honourable Kerry Sanderson AC, Governor of Western Australia.
We would like to thank all who contributed to the successful running of the event. We appreciate the support from students, staff, defence and local community members.

This year Jenna Lund’s Year 8 Drama Extension class performed a short play called “Sincerely”, showing the similarities and differences between multiple conflicts and time periods, through their letters home. The characters in this short dramatic reading were service men & women and those on the home front from various conflicts involving Australian Service men and women ranging from the Boer War to the Afghanistan War.
Letters home were often the only form of communication between military personnel and their loved ones during these trying times of conflict.
This was a touching tribute to those who have served and also to the families and friends who support them. Comet Bay College is proud of their commitment, emotional maturity and enthusiasm when approaching this play and taking direction.
Portrait of a Veteran Project
Comet Bay College coordinated a Community Art Project in honour of our veterans. Local (& student) artists painted the portrait of veterans and the finished artworks were exhibited in our front foyer.
