Remembrance Day

Pulteney’s annual Remembrance Day Service is a very special moment in our School year.  On Friday 10 November, we welcomed Old Scholars and their partners, past staff and parents, who joined our students from Kurrajong to Year 11 in the Quad. The 2018 Student Leaders assisted in marking the service and sacrifice of Pulteney Old Scholars and Queens Old Scholars at war. 

I extend my thanks to Mark Bourchier and the Community Relations Team, the Music staff for such beautiful accompaniment to our School's recognition of our important heritage and our Grounds & Maintenance Team for their support.

In speaking with Old Scholars at the luncheon held after the service, they expressed how touched they were by the level of engagement & respect they witnessed amongst the students and staff.
