Remembrance Day

We created our own poppy field with white rocks painted with poppies decorated by students from each class at EHPS to commemorate Remembrance Day on Wednesday 11th November.

On 11th November each year, we pause for one minute of silence to remember those who have served and died in wars, conflicts and peacemaking operations. This year has been like no other in living memory for Australia and the world. We may also choose to reflect on the unexpected roles that our current serving men and women are performing in support of our efforts against COVID-19.

As we draw together as a community in 2020 to face unforeseen challenges, you are also invited to remember another time when Australians faced enormous challenges and great adversity. Almost a million Australians served during the Second World War and millions more contributed to the war effort on the home front. This year, we commemorate the 75th anniversary of the end of the Seocnd World War, a war that changed Australia as we knew it.
