The Dawn Service has been part of Anzac Day commemorations across New Zealand since 1939. The service is a formal way to honour New Zealanders killed in combat, as well as servicemen and women both returned and still serving.

The Timaru Anzac service began at 6am with a dawn service on Queen Street. The day service was held at the Caroline Bay Soundshell where every section of seating was full. Our TBHS Prefects took part in a haka as a mark of respect. Our boys have spent a lot of time with Hami Goldsmith learning the Aoraki haka. You can view the video on our FB page.
