Principal’s Report
Lest We Forget.
Berry Public School greatly
values our relationship and
collaboration with our
community, including the
Berry RSL Sub Branch, and
we marked the Centenary
of the landing at Gallipoli
in true Berry style last
with many RSL members reflecting that it was the very best
school service they had ever attended. Our students and staff
were fortunate to receive a personal memento of the Centenary in
the form of a specially crafted medallion. We wish to thank the
Berry RSL for organising the medallions and also for their
attendance and contributions which add so much value to our
school service.
The community ANZAC Day service on Saturday was attended
by over 100 of our students who marched in the parade and then
performed a beautiful rendition of Lest We Forget, led by Mrs
Thanks to all of our parents for bringing the students to the
parade in uniform, special thanks to Mrs Barrett and Miss
Stanger for
liaising with
the Berry RSL
sub branch and
organising the
