Armistice Day Assemblies

To mark Armistice Day, students attended a week of assemblies which focused on the origins or Armistice and Remembrance.  Typically, remembrance has always taken the form of parades and the coming together of service personnel, family, friends, and communities.  However, over the past year, remembrance has taken on a different form for many people, many observing the period in solitude due to Covid restrictions.  We focused our assemblies on all the different ways we as individuals and communities can honour those that have fallen and /or been affected by War.  This included visits to monuments, doorstep salutes, writing of poems, and of course the wearing of Poppies.  We also looked at how other countries around the world observed Remembrance.  A two-minute silence was observed in school at 11am on the 11th November with all staff and students showing their respects.
