REMEMBRANCE DAY

On Friday, 11th November 2016, Year 3 to 12 students at Carramar gathered together to mark Remembrance Day. The service led by some of the Year 11 History Students, with participation by some Year 3 students and the school choir, remembered the sacrifices shown by Australian soldiers in World War One and all conflicts since that date. Poems, bible readings, prayers and a commemorative address were used to highlight the importance of Remembrance Day and the reason why we need to stop in order to think about servicemen and women who have paid the ultimate price for our rights and freedoms. The service also incorporated the traditional Last Post, Minutes Silence and Rouse. Lest We Forget.

Another successful and engaging learning experience for students studying MDT wood, metal or engineering in 2017.
