A sea of 500 people stood in silence at 11am on Monday to mark 101 years since the end of World War I and remember those who have fallen in conflict while wearing Australian uniforms.
Three hundred of those at the service were from Orange Anglican Grammar School, who were involved all through the service from doing readings to laying wreaths to singing.
Year 10 student Adelaide Webster delivered a speech about WWI, and after visiting Gallipoli earlier in the year she said it meant a lot to be able to speak on the day.
"It was such an honour to be able to do it, I appreciated the chance to do it," she said.
"Going to Gallipoli was really awesome, it was eye-opening into everything to see the battlefields of WWI and standing there opened my eyes and put it into perspective."
She said it was good to have the whole school attend the ceremony, saying it was "just like Anzac Day".

Orange RSL sub-branch senior vice-president Chris Colvin said he'd "never seen so many people" at an Orange Remembrance Day service.
"If you take the school out there were about 200 people here. It's grown from about a dozen to what it got today," Mr Colvin said.
"I hope it keeps going, it is the second Anzac day.
"It's the day we don't just remember the Anzacs, we remember every man who pulled on a uniform and didn't survive."
He said Remembrance Day was as big to him as Anzac Day, and said more veterans in Orange were coming along.
"This is my big thing, this is my day. This is the day I believe we have to foster," he said.
