Sergeant Jamie Stevenson from the Australian Army demonstrated to eight year six students how to raise and lower the flag. He then did a talk to all year 6 students about the protocol of the flag. The flag must not touch the ground because it is a sign of disrespect.
The big star on the flag is called the federation star. We appreciate Sergeant Jamie for coming and teaching us about the flag. If you see students putting up the flag, you should stand still until it is raised.
