Stu­dents and teach­ers mark 100th an­niver­sary

Daily Mercury - - NEWS -

MI­RANI State High School stu­dents con­tinue to show their par­tic­i­pa­tion in the com­mu­nity as they com­mem­o­rate Re­mem­brance Day this week­end, mark­ing the 100th an­niver­sary of Ar­mistice Day.

On Sun­day, No­vem­ber 11, school lead­ers and teach­ers from Mi­rani SHS will at­tend four ser­vices through­out the Val­ley, in Mar­ian, Mi­rani, Kut­tabul and Finch Hat­ton.

Each ser­vice will in­clude the 2019 school lead­ers pre­sent­ing speeches as well as lay­ing wreaths.

Com­mu­nity mem­bers and or­gan­i­sa­tions are in­vited to at­tend and con­trib­ute a wreath.

In com­mem­o­ra­tion of the

100th an­niver­sary of the Ar­mistice, one stu­dent will be pre­sent­ing a story “A Re­mem­brance Day” which hasn’t been done pre­vi­ously. The story is about a young cap­tain fight­ing in the war.

Mi­rani State High School will also be hold­ing a Re­mem­brance Day ser­vice at the school on Mon­day, No­vem­ber

12. This ser­vice will in­volve the whole school, al­low­ing all stu­dents the op­por­tu­nity to com­mem­o­rate 100 years of Re­mem­brance Day, as well as hear­ing from 10 speak­ers.

Head of his­tory at Mi­rani SHS Va­lerie Clarke said it was im­por­tant for stu­dents to con­tinue to com­mem­o­rate this day as most sol­diers from World War I and II are no longer with us.

“It is es­sen­tial for younger gen­er­a­tions to re­alise that the sol­diers gave their lives, so we can have a safe and happy coun­try,” she said.
