“Remembrance Day is a time to remember all the soldiers who fought in the war and died. You might have some great, great, great, great grandparents who fought in the war. Remembrance Day and ANZAC Day are related. The Remembrance Day symbol is a poppy. The wars stop on the 11the hour of the 11th day on the 11th month. The soldiers fought for their country. Every Remembrance Day we have 2 minutes of silence.” Luke – Foundation

Today we commemorate Remembrance Day across the school. At 11.00am Samantha shared a small commemoration over the loud speaker followed by the Ode and a minutes silence. Our School Captains represented us beautifully at the Remembrance Day Service up at the Beechworth Cenotaph as they placed the wreath on behalf of the school.
