Albany Creek State School ANZAC MemorialPrint Page Print this page

The ANZAC Memorial commemorates centenary of ANZAC and honours all men and women of the defence force past, present and future. The memorial is a mosaic artwork featured in a memorial garden. 

Over 1000 men, women and children placed tiles to create the artwork. Every student of Albany Creek State School, proudly placed a tile down. As they did this, the importance of the moment was explained to them. A call out was made to any defence force in the area,  in fact any families or community members, to come forth and place a tile. Everyone was given the opportunity. Entire families would arrive some afternoons to place a tile.

The mosaic features the Australian Flag, a cross and a soldier. The foreground is a field of poppies. 

The Centenary of Anzac 2014 to 2018 was an important period of national commemoration for Australia. Marking 100 years since our involvement in World War I, the Anzac Centenary was a time to honour the service and sacrifice of our original ANZACs, and the generations of Australian servicemen and women who have defended our values and freedoms, in wars, conflicts and peace operations throughout a Century of Service.
