We Will Remember Them…

Deputy Head Ian Thomas lead a Service of Remembrance on Friday 11th November which was was attended by pupils and staff from years 2 – 6. Children from years 2 and 3 presented poppy wreaths that they had made in class. The hall filled with music and song as everyone sang ‘We will remember’ and at 11 o’clock the 2 minute silence was respectfully observed whilst poignant images of the World Wars were displayed.
We were delighted to be joined by Chief 1st Officer Wingrove and his wife, 2nd Officer Wingrove who gave a few thoughts about Remembrance Day and various children took part reading poetry and passages from the Bible.
Meanwhile in Reception they marked Remembrance with a service in class and laid their own wreath. They got to try on a WW1 Tommy Helmet and looked at some medals.

On Sunday 13th November the Pupil Council represented the school at the Remembrance Parade in the town. They assembled at Lidl Car Park with other groups such as Cadets, Cubs, Rainbows and GTS as well as adult organisations.  Everyone processed, accompanied by the Town Band, to the memorial where the Remembrance Service took place.  Once again, at 11 o’clock everyone fell silent to honour of the fallen and the names of those from the parish who gave their lives for freedom were read out. Tom Murray (Yr6) and Callum Bunn (Yr5) had the honour of laying the wreath on behalf of the school.  Everyone then processed back to the Lidl Car Park.
