On Wednesday, 9th November, 1250 students from 27 schools across the Fremantle and Cockburn districts, participated in the annual RSL Youth Parade. The ceremony commemorated the 104th anniversary of the signing of the Armistice on the 11th November, 1918, putting an end to World War 1.
Our Year 4, 5 & 6 students from Room 14, represented Spearwood Primary School, marching from the Cockburn Council Chambers to the RSL Memorial Park on Spearwood Avenue. The students’ behaviour was exemplary, and our school leaders Hesha and Ezeckiel demonstrated their exceptional leadership skills by laying a wreath on the memorial, following protocols to the letter. It was a moving and thought provoking service, one that sets our students up to be leaders of the future. We are very lucky to be a part of such an event. Thank you to the City of Cockburn and RSL for the opportunity to attend.
