  1. Last term students and staff dedicated beautiful crocheted poppies which were then taken to France with Mrs Atilimile.  Mrs Atilimile was fortunate to attend the commemorations at Pozières, which she said was a very moving ceremony.

    Our dedicated poppies were planted around the memorial and at Windmill Site just outside of Pozières.  One of our staff’s dedicated poppies appeared in an ABC news article.

    JPC’s tributes and prayers now lie in the fields of Pozières, where thousands of young men now lie, forever remembered by the French and by the Australians.  Lest we forget.
