Anzac Day is commemorated on April 25th and is arguably Australia's most important national occasion. It is also Italy’s Liberation Day, marking the day Italy was liberated from Nazi and Fascist rule in 1945.

The College was invited by the Italian Defence Force Association in Adelaide to participate in a wreath laying ceremony at the Payneham Memorial Cemetery to honour those who fought for the freedom Italians enjoy today. In observing the special ties with Australia, the ceremony was also a time to remember and pay our respects to the ANZACs, whilst continuing our prayers for the people of Ukraine.

Two Year 11 students, Eve Corso and Mia Eliseo, and one Year 9 student, Siena Eliseo, participated in the ceremony by laying a wreath to represent Youth for World Peace. It was a meaningful day of commemoration celebrated by representatives of the RAAF force, the Royal Australian Navy, the Marinai Association, and members and family of the Italian Armed Forces Association.
