A reason why we have a poppy as a symbol of our identity
1. They are a symbol the soldiers who died and came back from the wars.
The poppies had grown all over the hills of Flanders Fields, to remember those fallen soldiers and the war horses of WWI, and WWII
Symbolise’s the blood of the soldiers and the war horses.
Symbolise’s the death of the soldiers and their faith.
Symbolises a peaceful future and a happy life.
This is a reflection
On Thursday the 23rd of April 2015 the school leadership team went to the shrine of remembrance in Melbourne for the 100 years of the landing in Gallipoli 1915.We had to arrive at 7:20 am for a photo, the role and then to get on the bus at 7:30 am. the trip was LONG and I sat next to Tahlia. We got to see lots of things like the beautiful fountains near the shrine.
When we got there it was about 10:00 , 10:15 am and when we arrived just in time for a little snack and a drink of water. Then it was about 11:00 when we sat down to watch the ceremony. There was air forces, the governor was there and the army guard. And there was about 4,000 – 5,000 people there including us!!! Asher and Daniel were our reeth layers!
It was a tiring effort all the singing and the walking and running. The winner of the junior speech comp was Laura i think she is in high school. After the ceremony we had lunch and split up into 2 groups Mrs. Brunswick took the boys around and in the shrine and Sharyn took us girls around and in the shrine. Us girls took pictures of all our group together and we also went to look at the internal flame and at about 1:15 we had to get on our bus back to Bendigo.
The people behind me were LOUD, and annoying ( They were not E.P.S students )
