Students and teachers mark 100th anniversary
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.
TIME FOR REFLECTION: Mirani High's 2019 school leaders will be supporting Remembrance Day services throughout the Valley.
