We are currently in the process of organising the Remembrance Day ceremony for Albany Hills. We have had a video presentation professionally made which tells the history of Remembrance Day. This continues into a Commemorative ceremony following the protocol which includes The Ode, Last Post, One Minute’s Silence and Reveille. This will be broadcast to classes just prior to first break on Monday 12th November.


 

To help commemorate this important day we would love to have an ADF vehicle visit the school for the day. With support from ADF parents in previous years, we have had an ASLAV, M113 AS4 Armoured Personnel Carrier, and last year we had an ADF Kenworth semi-trailer from Land 121 Unit at Amberley. The children love exploring the ADF vehicles and talking to the ADF personnel present.


 

While we will still submit a Request for Support through official channels and follow protocol we are hoping that by asking for help from ADF families at Albany Hills that we may have a greater chance of success. ADF families may have contacts and may be able to assist with obtaining an ADF vehicle for the day.


 

If you are able to be of any assistance, we would appreciate you contacting the school and speaking to Mrs Jodie Farley, the Deputy Principal or to Mrs Karen O’Connor the Defence School Transition Aide.


 

 

We can both be contacted through the school office on 3264 0777. Alternatively, we can also be contacted via our school emails jfarl2@eq.edu.au or kocon48@eq.edu.au. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions regarding the support.​
