On the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month, a minutes’ silence is observed and dedicated to those soldiers who died fighting to protect the nation.

St Joseph’s College assembled in the Doyle Centre for a Remembrance Day Ceremony on Monday 11/11 to pay tribute to the men and women who serve in our defence forces and remember those who have died or suffered in conflicts, wars and peacekeeping operations.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

Lest We Forget
