ST Kieran Catholic Primary School students paid respect to Australians who have died in war for Remembrance Day.

Year 5 students led their Tuart School in a ceremony on November 12.

Grace D’Arcy (Year 5) said this year’s ceremony was particularly important because it marked the 100th anniversary since World War I ended.

“Students presented various items that symbolised different parts of the war such as war medals, the Australia and Aboriginal flags and a poppy wreath,” she said.

“It was a very moving ceremony and the school processed out in silence at the end of the ceremony to show their respect.

“The school grounds have been decorated with hundreds of knitted poppies which were made by volunteers in our community and represent the fallen soldiers.”
