“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” – John 15:13
On the week commencing the 6th November, our school came together for remembrance week. It is always a special time in the year as we remember all of those who died during World War 1 as well as in other conflicts, including those happening today.
In our assemblies, led by Reverend Bec, student speakers shared the importance of the poppy and a poem ‘For The Fallen’ by Lawrence Binyan was read aloud. Displayed in the school corridors and on the crossroads were hand made poppies, a finger print display, and a book featuring stories written on grandparents and other family members who had lost their lives on the frontline.
At the end of the school week, on the 10th November, classrooms paused at 11am for a two minute silence. Only the the sound of students playing ‘The Last Post’ over the school tannoy could be heard. Three year 7 students shared their thoughts on what remembrance week meant to them, containing a written reflection on this important week.
