Remembrance Day 2016


On Remembrance Day 2016, Albion Park High hosted a moving and poignant ceremony to remember those who fought, those who have fallen, and those who continue to place their own lives at risk to protect us and our world.

I wish to thank our special guest Mr Don Tate who spoke very personally about the horrors that he had experienced in Vietnam. Most students had never heard first hand anyone
speak of these atrocities, and whilst it was hard to hear, it was the truth and the truth can never be forgotten.

I wish to thank Ms Lucille McGrath and her Year 9 History class who organised, ran and hosted the entire event. Our serious programming of Project Based Learning continues to grow from strength to strength and I believe that the deep learning experiences that our students are getting at Albion Park High School are second to none in this area. Well done to all involved.

HSIE have been very busy as a faculty and together created, in the library, with all of Year 9 History a magnificent museum commemorating World War 1 and World War 2. The projects involved deep thinking and knowledge, were collaborative and had a serious audience. Thanks very much to the HSIE faculty who are pushing the boundaries in learning and getting great results.
