Remembrance Assembly, November 2017

During Remembrance assemblies students shared their family Remembrance histories, having researched about wars their relatives had been in: from World War 1 to the Angolan War in Africa. "The Last Post" was played on the trumpet by William Knight, which was very moving.

After the assemblies were over, everyone in the school community was invited to investigate their own ancestors' involvement in wars in the past. Everyone was invited to write a message, fact, quotation, name, or date on a blank red poppy, from which Mrs Seath's tutor group, 8P, spent several lunchtimes making a huge display. We hope this experience has helped people to consider that Remembrance is still very important, and that many people have made huge sacrifices so that we can live in our safe, happy, free communities today.

They Shall Grow Not Old

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.

From the poem of Laurence Binyon, For the Fallen, written in September 1914.
