Comet Bay College remembers and appreciates the sacrifice and service by our Australian Defence Force members, past and present.
Our college foyer was covered in hundreds of heartfelt messages of gratitude on hand made paper poppies – crafted by our students in a tribute to all who have served.
Comet Bay College was also involved in a combined school event in Rockingham
Following the service at the Rockingham War Memorial, visiting students, veterans and the community were invited to visit the Remembrance displays inside the Gary Holland Community Centre.
