Today Beaconhills College paused remember the end of World War I and pay tribute to those who lost their lives in the line of duty.

There were moving tributes at each campus followed by a minute’s silence at 11am. At the Pakenham Campus service, the names of Diggers from the Pakenham District who died in the Great War were read aloud.

At the Berwick Campus, eight ‘Quilts of Valour’ were presented to special guests; veterans, the widow of a veteran and children who have lost their father or been traumatised through their father’s war service.

Established by Beaconhills teacher Helen Comport, the Berwick-based Quilts of Valour presents handmade quilts to service members and veterans of the ADF in recognition of their sacrifice for Australia while on combat operations. The recognition is also extends to soldiers’ families.

Lest we forget.
