Raising and lowering the flags each day is part of the role of being a Student Leader at Edney. In July the Leaders noticed that the flags were starting to look a little worse for wear and decided to write to Mr Stephen Price MLA, Member for Forrestfield to ask if he could provide us with new Australian, Western Australian, Aboriginal, and Torres Strait Islander flags. On Thursday 25th of August Mr Price, along with Mrs Zaneta Mascarenhas MP, Member for Swan, presented our Student Leaders with 4 brand new flags.
After we received the flags, student leaders took part in a demonstration of flag protocol from Mr Robert Irving. We would like to say thank you to Mr Irving for taking the time to show the Student Leaders how to care for the flags at our school. We learned the importance of each flag, where each flag should go, the correct order to hoist the flags, and how to carefully put the flags up and take them down. We also learned how to fold the flags correctly.
