Remembrance Day 2018

6/11/2018

​This Sunday marks a very important moment in world history. At 11am, one hundred years ago to the day, an armistice agreement came in to effect between the Allied forces (of which our country was a part) and the German army, marking the end of hostilities of World War One.

In the four years of the war more than 330,000 Australians had served overseas, and more than 60,000 of them had died.

Each year on this day Australians observe one minute’s silence at 11am, in memory of those who died or suffered in all wars and armed conflicts.

For those interested, Logan Village RSL will be hosting a memorial service on the Village Green from 10.30am. All are welcome to attend.

Our classes will be meeting Alistair the Armistice Bear this week (and next). He is a fantastic resource, purchased by our amazing Student Council. If you would like to read how Alistair received his name, take a look at this article from the Sydney Morning Herald.

Wherever you are on the day, make a promise to pause at 11am. If you think you may need a reminder, check out https://www.promisetopause.com.au
