OUR Lady of Fatima primary school has a strong tradition of respecting Remembrance Day and Anzac Day through art activities and services.
Teacher Amanda Heggen was speaking in the wake of Remembrance Day on Sunday 11 November.
“Our senior pupils proudly made art work mixed with images of war and a strong message of peace,” she said.
“This was to show their gratitude to the brave servicemen and women whose sacrifices have allowed them to grow up in a country full of wonderful opportunities.
“Their creativity and the deep thought they put into their work is truly wonderful. I am very proud of them.”
A book of the pupils’ artwork was presented to Rosebud RSL president Bruce Turner to commemorate the 100 years since the armistice to end World War I was signed.
After the Remembrance Day service on Sunday, pupils from several schools were to be awarded scholarships. These included Our Lady of Fatima’s Austin Blight, Trinity Bell, Taylor Gallimore and Jamie Lyall.
