Remembrance Ceremony 2015
11 November 2015
Today as a school we remembered the fallen of WW1 and every subsequent war since then. Representatives from every form group, the Senior Team, House Captains and members of staff gathered, to listen to war poems, and commemorative readings.
Father Phillip Swanson led us in prayer and Natasha Hayes played 'The Last Post' before the minute's silence, which was observed across school.
Students and teachers planted remembrance crosses which will remain in place this week.
Well done to all students who took part, and a big thank you to Mr Butterworth for organising such a special event.
The final two pictures are of Mrs Ballinger who is proud and honoured to be the owner of a poppy from the original artwork “Blood swept lands and seas of red” which was installed at the Tower of London to commemorate the centenary of the start of the First World 1914. The artwork was on display from 05.08-11.11.2014 and contained 888,246 hand-made poppies each representing a British member of the armed forces who lost their life during the First World War so that we could be free.
This artwork can be seen at St George's Hall in Liverpool until the New Year.
