Welcome to Trafalgar High School
From the Principals Desk
I would like to acknowledge and thank the local Thorpdale and Trafalgar members of the RSL for the organisation and their participation at the 100 Year ANZAC Commemoration Service we had as our whole school assembly on Wednesday. Mr Ray James, Mr Barry Davies and Mr Ron Mahoney all gave freely of their time to conduct the ceremony, sharing the importance of the ANZAC story and the importance of remembering those who served for Australia. We were joined by Mr Russell Broadbent Federal Member for McMillan who presented an Australian flag to the School Captains and shared his own personal reflections of ANZAC Day. Reverend Sue Jacka also shared some reflections with the school community. Our School Captains acquitted themselves well with James and Hannah reading the poem “In Flanders Fields”. Two members of the local navy cadets, Cory Gillett and Brittany Fox laid a wreath on behalf of our students.
Our students are to be congratulated on their behaviours throughout the entire assembly, they were indeed most respectful and were commended by all guests present.
It was unfortunate our school athletic sports had to be cancelled on Thursday, with constant rain throughout the evening and the weather indicating it was going to rain all day, the conditions would not have been pleasant for anyone in attendance. Their was also issues with safety with some events taking place in wet conditions. We are currently working on a alternative date and will let, students, parent/guardians know as soon as its been organised.
