WWI - Armistice day


This week we have been learning about WWI. Today Freeman and I, drew two soldiers being Happy because there is peace and no war. I have also draw a poppy which remembers the fallen in WWI. I have draw this to celebrate Armistice day. 

Armistice Commemoration


Today we had our own Armistice commemoration. It is nearly one hundred year since the beginning of Armistice Day. A representative form the New Zealand defense force came and talk to us in the Armistice commemoration. Mr Johnston talked to us about the olive tree and Ms Kirkpatrick talk about The Flanders Field. Ofa, Tiava and Jeremiah went up and talk Ode of remembrance. Jack and Mele went up and put the poppy by the fence. My role today was putting down the flag and putting it up while the a music played along. The music is called the last post and I was very nervous putting down the flag and putting it back up because everyone was look at me.

Poem

Did I Miss Anything?

Question frequently asked by students after missing a class

Nothing. When we realised you weren’t here
we sat with our hands folded on our desks
in silence, for the full two hours
Everything. I gave an exam worth
40 percent of the grade for this term
and assigned some reading due today
on which I’m about to hand out a quiz
worth 50 percent

Nothing. None of the content of this course
has value or meaning
Take as many days off as you like:
any activities we undertake as a class
I assure you will not matter either to you or me
and are without purpose

Everything. A few minutes after we began the last time
a shaft of light descended and an angel
or other heavenly being appeared
and revealed to us what each woman or man must do
to attain divine wisdom in this life and the hereafter
This is the last time the class will meet
before we disperse to bring this good news to all people
on earth

Nothing. When you are not present
how could something significant occur?

Everything. Contained in this classroom
is a microcosm of human existence
assembled for you to query and examine and ponder
This is not the only place such an opportunity has been
gathered

but it was one place

And you weren’t here

(Tom Wayman)
