Students Pay Remembrance Day Respects In Virtual Ceremony
/ Categories: News
Students and staff paid their respects on Remembrance Day with a whole-school virtual ceremony this year.
Due to social distancing and other Covid-19 restrictions, our annual Poppy Drop was unable to take place as it has done every other year – you can see a video of what this looks like here.
Instead, each class spent time reflecting on the sacrifices made by those who have served our country during times of conflict via a virtual assembly led by Assistant Principal Mrs Milnes.
The last post was then played out in the atrium with all classes impeccably observing a two-minute silence.
Mrs Milnes said: “For obvious reasons we have had to do things differently this year to commemorate Remembrance Day, however the reason behind the occasion was just as important and it was great to see each class contribute virtually to pay their respects.”
In the week leading up to Remembrance Day, students were encouraged to create their own poppy-themed window displays in their homes. You can see some of their efforts in the gallery below.
