Yom Ha'zikaron was commemorated in the Primary School with a short, solemn assembly and in the High School with a moving ceremony followed by a mentor group activity. Our thoughts and prayer go out the families of fallen soldiers and those lost in terror attacks. This year, Yom Ha'zikaron is even more poignant, given the distressing events of the last week.

The year 6 Judaica committee presented a polished and moving commemoration to honour the fallen soldiers of the IDF and victims of terror. The choir sang Eli Eli and Mr Lawrence recited the Kel Maleh Rachamim prayer. The Israeli flag was lowered to half-mast and the assembly ended with the singing of Hatikvah.
