After several weeks of reflection and commemoration to those who lost their lives in WW1, here are some of the beautiful and poignant tributes created and left by our students this November.
On the morning of Friday 9 November we celebrated Mass for the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One. We were delighted to welcome Fr Malcolm and Fr David into school so that we could commemorate the sacrifice of all those who lost their lives as a result of the Great War.
As part of our service, all the tutor groups in the school prepared a special commemorative wreath that was brought up during Mass to create two super-sized wreaths. Students and staff put an incredible amount of thought and effort into their creations, and we were delighted that they became such a poignant display for our two minutes silence.
A number of students and staff came into school in their cadet uniforms, with Ewan and Matthew both marching forward to ceremonially place the wreath below the flagpole. We were honoured and delighted to once more have a talented trumpeter to play the last post, and all of our community were admirable in their level of respect throughout the day.
