Whole School commemoration.
Our flag few at half-mast on Thursday 11th November to mark Remembrance, or Armistice, Day, the anniversary of the ending of World War One in 1918. The whole school gathered in the grounds for the two-minute silence at 11.00am, after which Daisy, one of our talented Priory Sixth musicians, played the Last Post on the trumpet.
Preps and Juniors had made their own poppies and Lower II Alpha also visited the Chapel and Prayer Garden to pray and wrote the names of deceased loved ones in the Chapel’s necrologue. This is the book displayed in the Chapel every November where pupils and staff write the names of those they wish prayed for.
Our caterers, Holroyd Howe, also joined in the commemoration with pastry poppies, Lord Woolton’s pie and poppy seed cake on the menu.
Gathering as a school to mark Remembrance Day was an important reminder for us all of those who have died in conflict and an opportunity to remember them.
