On Friday the 9th of November the whole school gathered on the field to witness a remembrance service conducted by Mrs John, my self and Dave Forster from the WGC branch of the Royal British Legion.
Students were gathered on the field just after 11 o’clock and were stood in place to watch the service unfold. The service started with Mrs John addressing the school and inviting the cadet students onto the service area. The Exhortation was then subsequently read and the last post played by students, Johnny Baynes and Catherine Cranham and Mr Collinson, citing the start of the two minute silence. All of the students held their heads high with pride as they observed their two minute silence. Words were said by Dave Forster, Mrs John and myself.
None of this could have happened without the support of many students and teachers that helped throughout the process of organisation and the conduct of the proceedings. Special thanks go to:
Mrs John, Mrs Jackson, Miss Barnard, Dave Forster (RBL), Tony Cousins (RBL), The Royal Marines Cadets, The Sea Cadets, The Army Cadets and William Stringer.
