Remembrance Day

On Friday we welcomed over 150 family members to our annual Remembrance Day ceremony. It was the first time in 3 years our whole college community could attend and the weather was perfect.

Aboriginal student Xander read an Acknowledgment of Country including a moving poem written about his great great granduncle, who fought in WWI.

The choir sang Imagine and the concert band provided the soundtrack to the cross planting, a tradition that has continued since 2018.

Year 12 students Abi and Conner returned to MC and Ben performed his last senior duty as he played the Last Post and Reveille. The flag bearers were Year 9 students and Army/Air Force Cadets Benita and Ethan.

Everyone reflected upon the meaning of Remembrance Day as the Junior Primary students sang, and Year 6 and Year 9 students shared their learning.

Wreaths were laid by Nat Cook MP, a representative for Amanda Rishworth MP and Education Director Heather Makris.
