Last week we marked Remembrance Day.  It took place on the 11th November at 11am because that was the exact time that the First World War ended.  The whole school and all of the teachers went onto the playground.  Our Head Girl and Deputy Head Boy read a beautiful poem.  The poem contained the famous line, ‘At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them’.  The whole school was silent for two minutes. It was a very touching moment.  We said prayers in our minds and thought about how they, ‘gave their todays for our tomorrows’.  We thought about all of the soldiers and heroes, the generals and the innocent people, the families and the children involved in wars. Thank you to the Charity Prefects for informing everyone about the Poppy Appeal with their presentation and encouraging us all to raise money for the Royal British Legion. It was a very sad but inspirational occasion and it made us feel more grateful for what we have today.
