Remembrance Service Together

On Thursday 11th November, the whole school congregated on the Headmaster’s Lawn for our annual Remembrance Service.

It was lovely that we were able to join together once again to pay our respects and remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

Mr Wyld’s Remembrance Address was followed by the reading of a poem by Head Boy, Harry H, before pupils joined together to lay wreaths. This year, Year 3 pupils had produced ten large poppy wreaths, each containing a fact about World War 1. It was wonderful to see our older pupils pair up with our younger children to read aloud each fact before laying the wreath and pausing for a moment to reflect.  

Everyone observed the minute’s silence before the Reveille by Dan G and Mr Richards. A poem was read by Head Girl, Ruby S, before the dismissal,

‘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.’

The Service proved the perfect finale to the lessons and activities that had gone on during the week, with pupils of all ages recognising the importance of Remembrance Day.
