Lest We Forget
On Friday 10th November, our school community gathered for a solemn Act of Remembrance. The ceremony commenced in the serene surroundings of St. James' Church, Newton, where we congregated to pay our respects in a moment of quiet reflection during the two-minute silence. The service featured poignant readings, including an excerpt from the Gospel of St. Matthew (Ch 25: 34-40) eloquently delivered by Eleanor F in Year 8. We were honoured to have Major Squires, RA, who read from the Gospel of St. John (Ch 15: 9-17).
A moving spectacle unfolded as poppy petals gracefully descended from the sky, creating a deeply emotional atmosphere that resonated with everyone present. The commemorative readings, accompanied by a heartfelt anthem from our choir and hymns sung with unwavering commitment, served as a beautiful tribute to those who sacrificed their lives in conflicts.
