Re­mem­brance Day 2018: Stu­dents pay trib­ute 100 years on

Monthly Chronicle - - Outdoor Lifestyle -

Just two days be­fore the 100th an­niver­sary of the WWI Armistice, Thorn­leigh West Pub­lic School held a com­mem­o­ra­tive assem­bly to hon­our the cen­te­nary of Re­mem­brance Day.

The school’s prin­ci­pal, Chan­tal Mamo, said the assem­bly was a touch­ing trib­ute to past and present sol­diers and gave us the op­por­tu­nity to sup­port Aus­tralian vet­er­ans and their fam­i­lies in need by rais­ing money for the Poppy Ap­peal.

“Thorn­leigh Pub­lic School is proud to com­mem­o­rate the cen­te­nary of the Armistice that ended the First World War,” Ms Mamo said.

Damien Thom­lin­son, a war vet­eran and in­vic­tus games com­peti­tor, talked to the stu­dents about the im­por­tance of serv­ing Aus­tralia and hon­our­ing its vet­er­ans.
