Remembrance Week

As part of the national act of remembrance, students have spent the week reflecting on the phrase, “for your tomorrow, we gave our today”. Tutor groups were invited to create their own memorials or wreaths, which have then been laid at the front of the hall during year group assemblies. They were asked to capture the importance of remembrance, and why people should be remembered. The assembly theme focused on why we continue to remember the fallen today and why it is of importance to them as the "future generation”.

History teacher, Miss Kim Mazelin, said: “We are confident that our students will be good custodians of remembrance in the future.”

The History department have been pleased with the creativity of a range of students, including a recording of a poem set to music by Year 8 students Madge Hutchison and Maria Slade, which was played in the Year 8 assembly on Thursday 10 November. The presentation ends with a quote made by a student in a History class: "Ordinary people make a nation great", clearly recognising the role of men and women who have made sacrifices for our country today.

 The whole school observed the national two minutes silence at 11am on Friday 11th November, and the Senior Prefect team sold poppies around school. Our Head Boy and Girl will attend the Purton Memorial Service on Sunday to pay their respects.
