This year’s service was again the focal point for residents, hundreds of whom had been to the Dawn Service at the Cenotaph in Martin Place. Nearly 300 packed into the chapel that typically seats comfortably 180! The College choir and organ provided a magnificent musical tribute to the fallen whose names were ready by the Senior Student, Mr Henry Hughes and the Graduate House Prefect, Mr Hugh Schroder after they laid the wreath.  The Last Post and Rouse were sensitively played by Mr Hugh Jordan in Second Year and the Anzac Address was given by Army Chaplain Tim St Quintin.

Statement in Response to NSSS Release 23 March 2022

The Residential Colleges within the University of Sydney today acknowledge the release of the National Student Safety Survey (NSSS) results.
