Tin Can Bay pays its respects

TIN Can Bay P-10 State School students paused on Tuesday to remember Australia's war heroes, past and present.

The school holds its Remembrance Day ceremony one day earlier than November 11, to allow students to learn more of what the day really means and to pay tribute to those who fought and paid the ultimate sacrifice for their country.

The students learn that if it were not for those brave souls and for the many who did not return, our lives and freedom would not be the same as we know it today.

On behalf of her classmates, Candice Donovan proudly placed a wreath of remembrance on the school's makeshift epitaph.

During the official wreath laying ceremony in Memorial Park on Tuesday, the Tin Can Bay School was represented by Kiara Wilson, Nick Bradley and Jessica Wharton.

Also in attendance were Gympie Regional councillor Mark McDonald and Maureen Costello from the Tin Can Bay RSL Sub Branch.
