Year 7 student, Samuel Bourke was the lone piper who led the procession during the National Police Remembrance Service at St Mary’s Church during the holidays. The day is recognised each year on 29 September to honour the sacrifice of officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty. It is a special day which is commemorated in all police jurisdictions across the nation and widely attended by Australian Police officers and the general public.
Samuel piped with reverence during the wreath-laying and respectfully led the procession on the conclusion to what was an emotive and reflective service. Samuel started with the Pipes and Drums in Year 4.
