Students at Tambar Springs Public School have been very busy lately.
The school remembered the fallen and all those who served during Remembrance Day this year.
A group of students attended a small gathering for a Remembrance Day service, and marched through the gates to mark the start, where Ellie laid the school wreath at the base of the cenotaph.
The children learned about the significance of the statue of the young soldier, and were reminded that many of the soldiers who fought and died in WWI were younger than some of their brothers are now.
After listening to some poems and participating in a minute of silence, the service ended with recordings of The Last Post, the hymn Abide With Me and the song It's a Pittance of Time. The children were quiet and respectful through the entire service, and this excellent behaviour was noticed by other people at the ceremony.
Students also celebrated NAIDOC Week, the theme of which was 'Always Was, Always Will Be'.
Students embraced the true history of this country, which began a very long time before the first documented European landing on Australia by the Dutch on the Western Coast of the Cape York Peninsula in 1606.
The Tambar Springs kids participated in NAIDOC Week by listening to Aboriginal Dreamtime Stories and creating art and writing inspired by these stories.
