The Otago University Students' Association and the University
of Otago will again stage a joint service to mark Anzac Day.
OUSA president Ruby Sycamore-Smith said this was the third
year the organisations had hosted a joint ''large-scale
service on campus''.
This had proved a popular time to ''pay our respects'' and to
''honour those who served, and give thanks for the peace we
have today'', she said.
The hour-long service will begin at 1.30pm tomorrow and is
open to the public.
It will be held on the university clocktower lawn but will
switch indoors to the University Link, near the university
central library main entrance, if the weather is wet.
OUSA and Te Roopu Maori executive members would lead the
ceremony and Dunedin Mayor Dave Cull and Otago University
vice-chancellor Prof Harlene Hayne would give readings, Ms
This year's Anzac Day address on campus will be delivered by
Colonel (retd) Roger McElwain, who has long served in the New
Zealand Defence Force, including as Commander Land Training
and Doctrine Group in Waiouru and Commander 3 Land Force
Group during the Canterbury earthquakes.
