Remembrance Day Ceremonies
The students participated in two ceremonies on Monday to acknowledge Remembrance Day in our community.
The first was a school-based ceremony, held during assembly, led by our Grade 6 students. Abbie L, Ava C, Isaiah N, Charles N and Alex R spoke beautifully and led us through the ode, the last post and national anthem along with the lowering and rising of the flag.
The attention and respect our students displayed as an audience was very fitting of the occasion.
The second ceremony was held at the Bentleigh RSL, where a group of our students joined the
wider community service sector to lay a wreath. Again, the respect and care that was displayed was
excellent and we are very grateful to be represented by such great students.
Grade 3 Camp
The Grade 3 cohort are travelling to Phillip Island for their first camp today and I will be attending
the camp with the students and enjoying the opportunity to help out and get to know the students
in a different setting.
We will have a great time and no doubt miss the comforts of home a little. This is what camp is all
about and it makes getting home on the Friday all the more special.
Grade 5 and 6 Beach Program
The Grade 5 and 6 Beach Program started this week and it is reassuring to know the students are
being upskilled in beach safety and first aid. Monday started off as beach type weather, but the rest
of the week has been quite chilly. Our school leaders have put on the brave faces and engaged
happily with the program.
Have a great week.
