OCEAN Road Primary School held a Remembrance Day fundraiser to support V360 Australia, a charity that helps homeless and at-risk Australian veterans who served in the armed forces.

Students were invited to dress in red to signify a poppy.

Dawesville RSL president Bill Bryden visited the school which has supported V360 since 2016.

V360 ambassador and education assistant Leah Lawler has established the relationship between Ocean Road and V360 and feels a tremendous sense of achievement through connecting the two communities.

β€˜It is important we get students involved to ensure future generations have an understanding of who we are as Australians and the sacrifices made by those who fought in the wars to give us our freedom,’’ she said.

Mrs Lawler also hopes the ongoing relationship instils a sense of community in students and encourages them to reach out and help others.
