Over 450 Old Collegians, parents, students and friends of King's College gathered in the Memorial Chapel for ANZAC Day. 

Hosted by the King's College Old Collegians' Association (KCOCA), the Service included a range of hymns and prayers, featuring the King's College Chapel Choir, as well as a special presentation by two Year 13 students, Catherine Fu and Oliver Paterson. 

The Address was delivered by Rt. Hon. Paul East QC, CNZM and The Roll of Honour was read by Headmaster Michael Leach and KCOCA President Terry Gould.

The Last Post was played by Year 13 student Harry Legget.

At the conclusion of the Service, guests were invited to place their poppies in the Quad alongside the 111 crosses that were laid by students on Thursday afternoon. Morning tea was then served in the Student Dining Hall.

This year, ANZAC Day marked the centenary of the ANZAC's landing at Gallipoli in 1915, which the College was honoured to commemorate.
