Home Hill High remembers

5/12/2013
​Year 8 student Karli wins the Remembrance Day competition

On Monday 11 November Home Hill High again remembered the courage and resilience of our servicemen and women during commemorations for Remembrance Day.  Poppies were sold and worn by students and staff and a Remembrance Day ceremony during parade on Monday morning included a performance by the school choir.  At 11am the entire school community paused for one minute’s silence to remember those who suffered in war.

Home Hill High students and staff were then among over 405,000 students around Australia, who stopped to read the Pledge of Remembrance, breaking the World Record set by the same program last year for the most children participating in a reading event.  Following that, students participated in Remembrance Day activities in their classes to help them understand and appreciate the sacrifices made by servicemen and women.

Year 8 student, Karli Linton is the winner of the Remembrance Day ‘Home Hill High Remembers’ competition.  Karli’s moving entry of a series of Diary entries by a young girl during war time demonstrated her empathy and comprehension of the sacrifices made by young servicemen and women and their families.  Congratulations Karli!!
