Ninety-nine years ago, the guns fell silent. Today, Australians rose their voices and stilled their hearts. We will remember them.
Organised by the Goodna RSL Sub-branch, the moving commemoration ceremony spoke of sacrifice, mateship and courage. A hallmark of Australian soldiers since before Federation.
To commemorate the many who have served and continue to serve, 2018 Boys’ Vice Captain Jack Lewis delivered a passionate speech, reflecting on the profound impacts war has had on his own family. He spoke of equality, justice, and taking a stand. Her red poppy blowing gently against her blazer, 2018 Girls’ Vice Captain read the evergreen In Flanders Fields, by John McCrae.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.
Captains elect, James Wright and Zoe Acutt laid a wreath on behalf of the College.
Let we forget.
