remembrance day ceremony

Today the entire school walked to the Reflection Space in the centre of Hawkesdale. A number of community members, including local council member, Jim Doukas, and staff and students from the Pre-School also attended.

The Moyne Shire Youth Councillors capably led the service, which included:

  • Recitation of ‘In Flanders Fields‘ poem
  • A commemorative address
  • Laying of the wreaths
  • Ode to the Fallen
  • The Last Post led into the one minute’s silence, followed by the Rouse.
  • The Australian flag was lowered as Ode to the Fallen was played and raised again as The Last Post was played.
