Statement of Interna,onal Mindedness
On Friday 24th of April our year 5/6 student leaders, supported by Kris/na DuCon and Katherine Keily lead the
Anzac Day Ceremony. Claire Halse taught the junior
school to sing ‘I am Australian’, which they lead the
whole school in singing. All students made poppies that
created three beau/ful wreaths. David Southwick our
local member and Tony Murray a representa/ve from
the Caulfield RSL shared informa/on and personal stories
with us as part of the ceremony. I spoke about the Gallipoli Oak, which David Southwick presented to our students leaders. We were joined by parents and local residents who stopped what they doing to watch the Anzac
Day Ceremony.
At Caulfield Junior College it is an
understanding that students will develop the knowledge
and skills to appreciate our own and other people’s
cultures; exploring differences and embracing them in
order to become responsible ci/zens of our world.

On ANZAC Day, students of Caulfield Junior College have been
invited by the Caulfield RSL to parcipate in an inaugural
march down Glenhuntly Road preceding the Caulfield RSL
Dawn Service at 4 St Georges Road.
Everyone is invited and encouraged to take part in this event
which will include a march honouring those fallen, hymns,
prayers, laying of wreaths, the Last Post, a period of silence,
the Reveille, and both the Australian and New Zealand naonal anthems will be sung. The parade will be led by two members of the Light horse Brigade followed by a drum corps playing military solos from CBC St Kilda.
Parents are encouraged to watch on, while students march in
the parade in honour of a family member or friend. If there is
no family connecon, students are encouraged to research a

CLASS CONVENERS
Class convenors play a very important role in the school community. We need one for each class (or it can be a

contact with other kids in their class. Class breakfasts and class pizza par/es have become popular events at CJC.
Please contact Emma if you're interested in the posi/on or if you have any ques/ons about the class convenor role
([email protected]). Please also let your child's teacher know if you are taking on the role.
