Pre­par­ing to re­mem­ber ser­vice

The Advocate (Perth) - - LET'S EAT -

STUDENTS in the Pearce elec­torate will re­ceive an ed­u­ca­tional kit in prepa­ra­tion for Re­mem­brance Day this month to help hon­our ser­vice men and women.

Pearce MHR Chris­tian Porter said the ed­u­ca­tional kit, de­vel­oped by the Depart­ment of Vet­er­ans’ Af­fairs, would help schools plan ed­u­ca­tional and com­mem­o­ra­tive ac­tiv­i­ties for Re­mem­brance Day.

“Our lo­cal com­mu­nity con­tin­ues to hon­our the ser­vice and sac­ri­fice of the men and women who ser­vice in de­fence of our na­tion,” he said.

“As a com­mu­nity it is es­sen­tial that each gen­er­a­tion learns about that sac­ri­fice and un­der­stands how Aus­tralia’s in­volve­ment in wars, con­flicts and peace­keep­ing op­er­a­tions have shaped this coun­try.”

He said the ed­u­ca­tional kit would in­clude a Re­mem­brance Day com­mem­o­ra­tive poster, the 2018 Depart­ment of Vet­er­ans Af­fairs Cal­en­dar and ed­u­ca­tion in­for­ma­tion.

“This year’s Re­mem­brance Day poster will hon­our the con­tri­bu­tion of Aus­tralian peace­keep­ers over the last 70 years,” he said.
