Sadly, I bring up Westfield Bondi Junction shopping centre in the east of Sydney. Six people were killed in a knife attack; five of the victims — four women and a man — died at the busy centre on Saturday afternoon, and another woman died from her injuries in hospital. Eight others were injured, including a nine-month-old child, who remains in hospital, and some are still in critical condition. We wish to extend our thoughts and prayers for all involved; this was a truly despicable act that, as Prime Minister Anthony Albanese said, was “beyond words or understanding”.

Last but certainly not least, I would like to bring up Anzac Day. Anzac Day is a time at which Australians reflect on the many different meanings of war. It is a National Day of Remembrance in Australia and New Zealand that broadly commemorates all Australians and New Zealanders “who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations” and “the contribution and suffering of all those who have served.” Anzac Day is a day of great significance for Defence and Veteran community members and for Australia to pay tribute to those who have served and died in military and peacekeeping conflicts.

Lest we forget.
