Remembrance


 

On Armistice Day, Senior girls and staff gathered informally in School Hall to sit in silence in an act of Remembrance.

Remembrance does not glorify war. Marking Armistice Day with an act of Remembrance raises hope for a peaceful future.

Remembrance unites people of all faiths, cultures, and backgrounds but it is also deeply personal.

In every act of remembrance, we honour the memory of the fallen and pledge to care for the living.

The short silence ended with a reading.

In the Junior School, girls held an act of Remembrance at the end of play time.
