Flying Fruit Fly Circus School

For our commemoration we invited local dignitaries including the Mayor, Commandant and representatives from local Army Base, Local Member Parliament, and Circus Director. The ceremony began with an Indigenous Smoking ceremony to honour the traditional landowners. Student Leaders then hosted their school through a ceremonial planting. The special guests were invited to each help in replacing the earth as a symbol of their commitment to helping the younger generation and generations to come in remembering the Anzacs, all who have fallen in wartime, and our current Serving Members in their service to our nation. There was a minute silence and poppies were laid by all participants. Our tree plant site and plaque block work, was prepared by students from our sister High School, who are involved in the HOLP (Hands On Learning Program)- a program for students who struggle to engage in traditional learning. These students were also involved in the planting ceremony. We are very grateful to have a Gallipoli Oak and look forward to many more years commemorations to take place around the tree.
