Antarctica Day is an international holiday recognising the anniversary of the signing of the Antarctic Treaty in 1959.
It is celebrated on 1st December each year. To commemorate it Year 7 and 8 students had the opportunity to design a flag. The entries were so good, that our Teacher of Humanities, Ms Ward, decided to combine them all into one as she couldn't decide on an overall winner! We were very excited to receive a photograph of our flag in Antarctica! We received this information with the picture:
"Your flag travelled to Antarctica with Matthew Hughes. Matthew is a Tower Operations Supervisor for the British Antarctic Survey. In this role he supervises flights which are landing at Rothera. He took these photos at Rothera Research Station, Adelaide Island"
