Lest We Forget - Remembrance Day 2016

At 11 am on 11 November 1918 the guns of the Western Front fell silent after more than four years continuous warfare.

In 1997, Governor-General Sir William Deane issued a proclamation formally declaring 11 November to be Remembrance Day, urging all Australians to observe one minute's silence at 11 am on 11 November each year to remember those who died or suffered for Australia's cause in all wars and armed conflicts

On Friday this college will observe Remembrance Day speech and a 1 minute silence at 11 AM.
