Australian Defence Force (ADF) personnel and local veterans joined our Defence families and former students in a special commemoration to honour Remembrance Day.
Year 9 student Ollie Smith performed an acoustic version of ‘I Am Australian’ which was followed by the Last Post, a minute’s silence and the playing of ‘The Rouse’. Prayers were read by Navy Chaplain Lynette Emery, before guests enjoyed a morning tea prepared by student volunteers.
Defence School Mentor Claire Hunt said it was important school’s paused to reflect on Remembrance Day.
“This event enables all generations to get together to honour the sacrifice our servicemen and women made, and the hard work and dedication our current ADF personnel continue to do for our country,” she said.
