Dear Aurora, Hola, Joshua and Valensia.
Today the whole school celebrated ANZAC Day. First we had mass. It was the whole school mass. Some parents were there. We all have to sit next to our soul friends. It was a good mass. After mass we had our liturgy. It was short but amazing.
Some parents came and we had some visitors some the RSA (Returned and Services Association). We gathered around the grotto. Some people were holding the New Zealand flag, others were holding a vase full of water and flowers, some other people were holding a picture of a lemon squeezer ( A lemon squeezer is a hat, not an actual lemon squeezer.)
The others were just standing around the grotto. I was helping Salote with the music. I forgot to tell you guys that we had our poppies with us. We listened to this music called “The Last Post.” We were all silent. After that we read the oath.
After reading the oath we all sang the national anthem. After singing the national anthem we all went back to our class. Mr. Hooker came to visit us. (Mr. Hooker is our old teacher.) You guys are missing out on the sausage sizzle.
Take care! :)
