In the early 2000s an Anzac memorial area was created and gradually expanded to include a memorial stone with poppy symbol for class wreath laying, an outdoor stage area, for dignitary seating and speech making and most recently a bespoke ANZAC gate opening to Honour Avenue added for the 100th anniversary of the first ANZAC day. The stage and opening up access to the memorial from the oval was part of the 100th Anniversary Grant Project. The ANZAC day ceremony has been an important event on the YSS calendar each year since World War 1. Since 1924 students at the school have brought along individual bouquets which are taken out to Honour Avenue and placed around the trees which were planted by the community after World War 1 to remember the 97 people who came from the area and who lost their lives during the war. Their names appear on plaques at the foot of these trees. These days, Yeronga students continue the tradition begun almost a century ago of laying floral or leafy tributes at the foot of trees along Honour Avenue.
