We came together today to remember all of those who have given their lives in our honour. We remember those who lost their lives on active service in all conflicts; from the beginning of the First World War right up to the present day.
We thought about current serving soldiers, veterans and their families, and we considered how we can support them.
As a whole school community, we also observed a minutes silence together.
Our Senior Team, made up of Ali, Julia, James, Libby, Libby, Rena, Raissa, Wiki and Alisha led the service alongside Mrs Brown, Curriculum Leader for Humanities, with special poems, readings and reflections.
We heard about the poppy being a symbol of hope and peace and there being other coloured poppies too - purple, black and white - that have different meanings.
The purple poppy is to remember animal victims of war, whilst the black poppy remembers African, Black and Caribbean communities' contribution and the white poppy remembers people who died in conflict with a focus on an end to war.
Students from Year 10 and Year 11 Corey, Elyssa, Jakub, Kayden, Ross, Rowan, Ty, and Tyler were fantastic representatives for the Cadets.
