On Friday the 10th Nov, our school held a ‘Remembrance Assembly’ followed by 1 minute’s silence at 11.00am.
We did this to remember all those who have fought not only in the World Wars, but the more than 12,000 British Servicemen and women killed or injured since
It is our way of showing respect for them and to thank them for what they have done for us.
We do this each year at the eleventh hour, of the eleventh day, of the eleventh month. This is because the is the time and date when the First World War ended and all the fighting stopped.
We sold Poppies and merchandise from the British Legion in school to raise money for ex-servicemen and women who need our help. Thank you for all your contributions this year.
“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.”
