Waitahuna School's Field of Rememberance

This week we have been remembering the soldiers who served in World War One as we commemorate 100 years since the war.  The children have discussed the war and we have talked about how it affected a small town like Waitahuna. Our Roll of Honour Board holds the names of ten soldiers who died in WW1.  

Today we held a service to commemorate these soldiers and all soldiers who fought. The poem 'Flanders Field' and 'The Ode' were read, also a list of our Waitahuna soldiers was read. The children sang the National Anthem and laid poppies.  We have included some photos for you to view of our commemorations.
