Six Villages students remember the sacrifice of war

Students and staff took time in this morning's whole school assembly to remember and honour those who have sacrificed themselves to secure and protect our freedom.

 

Led by Mr Marsh, Head of Humanities, Miss Crebbin, Head of MFL and Principal Ms Sharif, the assembly allowed everyone to reflect on the significance of the sacrifice of war.  Poems were read by prefects Zoe Tunnell, Lucy Wake and Poppy Thompson; Mr Marsh presented startling statistics and facts about the losses in World War 1 and explored the history of the poppy as a symbol of remembrance and Miss Crebbin showed photographs and shared experiences from Six Villages students who had visited the WWI battlefields on two recent trips, run jointly by the History and MFL departments. 

 

Ms Sharif then led students and staff in the reflection below, before Stanley Wright played the evocative and poignant 'The Last Post' on the trumpet to close the assembly.
