ANZAC Day - 25 April at 10.00 am each year.

Tasman Village had 52 men go off to WWI - including 3 to the Boer War. Thirteen were killed in action and their names are etched into the cenotaph at the bottom of the school grounds. Along with these names are 5 who were killed in the WWII. 

Join us each year to remember them at 10.00 am on 25 April.

ANZAC Day - Gallipoli Centenary, 25 April 2015

The Centenary ANZAC service at Tasman School had a big turnout of over 200 people.

Led by Richard Easton and Reverend Peter Bean who did a beautiful job, with a local historian, Nigel McFadden giving a harrowing account of what the soldiers faced as they arrived in Gallipoli.

The students of Tasman School read out names of those locals that left the Tasman Village to go to War. The flag was lowered to half mast by Max Sladen, to the sound of the Last Post. It was a very moving ceremony.

The ceremony was followed by morning tea which was organised by the Tasman Area Community Association.
