This morning our student leaders ran an ANZAC memorial service. It was fantastic to see our learners displaying high levels of respect in remembering those who sacrificed their lives. The theme of the morning was to reflect on how fortunate we are and how those who served our country displayed many of the dispositions played out in the vision of our Silverdale Normal Learner.
We look forward to many of our boys and girls attending services on ANZAC Day. Our school leaders will be representing Silverdale Normal School in Hamilton.
Poppy’s stand for blood.
The blood the soldiers lost for our sake.
The blood that was shed on the battlefield
That still remains.
And in this moment of silence we remember them
And who are to us.
They sacrificed there life for us so we can be safe.
What we can do in return is to say that they
Are there with us. Lest we forget.

What did you save?
Injured soldiers blessed by me.
Where do you lay?
Between the crosses row by row.
What do you hear?
Gun shots firing everywhere.
What do you remember?
Soldiers marching one by one.
What shall we know?
Peace on earth will grow grow grow.
I have a little poppy
As red as can be
To show my love for
The ones who fought
To make us free.
