August 4th, 1914 marked the day of the first world war 1 centenary. This morning at Assembly, Mr Burt told us a story about ‘ The shot that echoed around the world ‘ . It was about a Archduke, who got shot. The archduke was very well supported, and ever since that shot fired, countries like the Russian or british empire have been in war with other nations such as germany.
Mr Burt said during assembly that his grandfather fighted in the world war 1 as well as Ms. Flavelles. Mr Burt and Ms Flavelle are very lucky that their grandfathers came back safely. Today was very special because our school raised our flag in remembrance of those who were in the war.
Overall from what I have learnt this morning, I learnt that lots of those soldiers worked really hard and put a lot of effort into themselves. Lest we forget means that we should show gratitude towards our past soldiers and not forget about how they sacrificed the things for us New Zealanders!
