Our schools have all marked Remembrance Day today, observing the two minute silence and welcoming visitors from the armed services to commemorate those who have died in military conflicts.
The Gryphon School welcomed representatives of the Old Fosterians’ Association for their annual Remembrance Service this year. The address was given by Commander Ben McGreal, RN, on the theme of the importance of remembrance. Gryphon teacher, Steve Fox, played the last post and reveille after the roll of honour had been read by Old Fosterian, Mr Love.
Wreathes were placed at the Roll of Honours boards by Co-Chairs of the School Council, Isabel Fraiz-Brown and Joshua Slocombe and Philip Dolbear from the OFA.
Students from King Arthur’s School stood in solidarity to mark the two minutes silence. This was led by student Libby, who read alongside Holly, a poem written to commemorate the event.
They were joined by Councillor Power who played the last post to mark the occasion. Student who are part of uniformed services outside of school wore their uniforms with pride.
