Remembrance Day

On Tuesday 11 November Remembrance Day services were held across the School. The services are an important way for students and the whole Ivanhoe community to pay their respects, reflect on and remember the sacrifices of those who have served military service and of those who died in battle.

The red remembrance poppy has become a familiar emblem of Remembrance Day due to the poem In Flanders Fields. These poppies bloomed across some of the worst battlefields of Flanders in World War I.

The Cadet Unit posted a Catafalque Guard and the names of former Ivanhoe students who have lost their lives at war were read out.

The School would like to thank the students for their contribution to the Dedication of the Doreen War Memorial, and the Remembrance Day Service. It was an excellent event and the students represented Ivanhoe Grammar School magnificently.
