Remembrance Day

The School Wreath

At the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, our school will maintain a minute’s silence as part of their Remembrance Day Ceremony at the Hawkesdale Reflection centre in the centre of our small town. This  ceremony  will take on special significance as we enter the year of the centenary of the start of World War I. Community members are also invited to attend this service which is organised by the Student Leadership Team and Ms Van Englen and Mr Huglin. The team has met at lunchtimes.
