Remembrance Day 2020

11th November 2020

Remembrance honours the service and sacrifice of our armed forces, veterans, and their families. A virtual assembly was held and the children read some beautiful poems and prayers in honour of those who lost their lives in the war. Year 7 child, A Peglar read a beautiful poem, The Soldier by Rupert Brooke. Today we honour and remember our heroes.


If I should die, think only this of me:
That there’s some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
A dust whom England bore, shaped, made aware,
Gave, once, her flowers to love, her ways to roam,
A body of England’s, breathing English air,
Washed by the rivers, blest by suns of home.
And think, this heart, all evil shed away,
A pulse in the eternal mind, no less
Gives somewhere back the thoughts by England given;
Her sights and sounds; dreams happy as her day;
And laughter, learnt of friends; and gentleness,
In hearts at peace, under an English heaven.
