It was lovely to see the Chapel full of people for our Remembrance Service last Sunday for the Centenary of the Armistice that ended World War One.
There was a mix of Old Boys and Old Girls plus current pupils, parents and staff and their families and friends and it was a memorable occasion for everyone. We were blessed (along with many other Remembrance events) that the wet weather took a turn for the better so we could lay wreaths at the War Memorial with just a small calamity as a couple of wreaths blew over in the wind! But the spirit, the intent, the feel of the occasion was suitably respectful as warrants such an event, as well as doing our best to be positive about lessons that can be learnt.
My thanks go to those who attended plus those who helped make the service happen as smoothly as it did (readers, choir, behind the scenes organisation) and I look forward to next year's event and the 80th anniversary of the beginning of World War Two.
