Thank you to our amazing community who helped to grow our Somerville Rise field of poppies so that we could remember and honour those who have fallen and fought for freedom and peace.

It was wonderful to see so many people attending not only our poppy field, but our special assembly this afternoon. I think everyone would agree that we are lucky to have such phenomenal and articulate senior school students.

We hope you got to enjoy the vista of glorious poppies before they were whipped every which way by a rather inconsiderate wind! We will be working on making hurricane proof poppies and silhouettes for next year’s display and look forward to working with our community again. 

Thank you to Hastings RSL, Blacks Camp Pre-School, Wagtail Cottage Early Childhood Care & Education, Somerville Child Care and Kindergarten, Little Grasshoppers Early Learning Centre and Somerville Secondary College.
