This year, during our annual Remembrance assembly, we commemorated the 100th anniversary of the end of hostilities in World War I. After a brief reminder of a similar assembly held four years ago, we continued on our theme of individual stories from individuals who took part, including those from far flung paces in the world, fighting for countries they had never seen. This was all excellently presented by my helpers from Year 8: Eilidh, Amaia, Tamara, Julia, Martin, Irene and Rocio. Particularly poignant being the letter written by Florence Iles, who wrote to her young brother who died before getting a chance to read the letter.
As always, a minute’s silence was held at the eleventh hour, followed by a rendition of ‘The Last Post’.
The assembly ended with a reminder that Sunday 11th November, will be the actual anniversary and all were asked to spare a thought for those who ‘gave up their tomorrows for our todays’.
