Remembrance Day Service 2018

(Thank you to Port Kennedy RSL who provided the poppies to the School today to raise money for the Poppy Appeal.)

The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month attained a special significance in the post-war years.  The moment when hostilities ceased on the Western Front and became associated with the remembrance of those who died in the war and was called 'Armistice Day'.  After the end of the Second World War, the Australian and British governments changed the name to Remembrance Day.  Armistice Day was no longer an appropriate title for a day which would commemorate all who died in wars.

Today as a community, we pay our respects and remember all who sacrificed their lives so that we can live in freedom.  We also acknowledge those who serve our country on a daily basis, protecting our freedom and our security.
