Ocean Road PS students wore red for Remembrance Day

OCEAN Road Primary School students dressed in red for Remembrance Day.

Students were invited to dress in red and bring a gold coin donation to support V360 Australia, a charity that helps homeless and at-risk Australian veterans.

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

“It is extremely 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 hopes this ongoing relationship instils a sense of community in students and encourages them to reach out to help others.
