Remembrance Day 2020

11 Nov 2020

This Remembrance Day I encourage all staff and students to wear a poppy and pause for a minute's silence at 11am 11 November to remember all those that have served our country, but particularly those who paid the ultimate price during their service: the men and women who for over 100 years have distinguished themselves with their courage, their resolve and their loyalty; the men and women who sacrificed their future for ours; the men and women to whom we will remain forever grateful.

The strong and spirited character of our nation rests firmly on the inheritance from each and every one of the more than 102,000 Australians lost serving their country. It is our privilege and our duty to ensure that their great sacrifice continues to be remembered and honoured.

Lest we forget.
