Children in Years 2 to 8 and staff took part in a moving and thought-provoking Remembrance Service on Monday. Even the youngest children walked from their classrooms to take their place in the Performing Arts Centre in complete silence. The service was led by Year 8 girls who explained a little about the significance of the roles played by women in wartime, after which the congregation walked in procession out onto the terraces. Both Mr and Mrs Searson spoke, and the Year 8 children read out the names of each Old Beaudesertian who gave his life in either the Great War, the Second World War or the Korean War. This was followed by an accomplished playing of The Last Post by Archie in Year 8 , before the two minute silence was observed and the wreath was laid.
