Children in Years 2 to 8 and staff took part in a moving, sombre, thought-provoking Remembrance Service this morning. In between hymns, six Year 8 children did readings. These included a timeline of important worldwide events during 1918 which lead, eventually, to Armistice Day. One of the children read Wilfred Owens’s famous poem, Anthem for Doomed Youth, and pupils sang a setting of the poem, In Flanders Fields by John McCrae. After the wreath-laying, the names were read out of each Old Beaudesertian who gave his life in either in the Great War, the Second World War or the Korean War. This was followed by an accomplished playing of The Last Post by Bryn and Archie B in Year 7, before the two minute silence was observed.
