East Timor Independence Day Ceremony

To coincide with our Project Care casual dress fundraiser, our Year 4 student leaders hosted an assembly for all Junior School students to celebrate East Timor Independence Day. We heard about some of the history of East Timor and the connection that Christian College has shared over the last fifteen years, listened to the East Timor National Anthem and raised the East Timor flag. A wreath depicting the East Timorese flag, made by the students of Junior School, was unveiled in recognition of this special occasion.

Students also had the opportunity to purchase a stationery item from a stall, with all profits raised going towards buying 10 sets of 20 picture books for schools in East Timor.

Today we pray for peace and reconciliation for all of the people of East Timor after years of hardship.
