Remembrance Day 2019

On Tuesday 12th November 2019, staff and students at Ark Evelyn Grace academy observed two minute' silence in honour of all the members from the various Commonwealth armed forces who died in the line of duty since the end of First World war.

Highlights of the ceremony included:

  • A rendition of 'Last Post' played by special guest, Evan Holwill
  • An exhortation read by Francisco from Year 11 - “They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old, Age shall not weary them nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun, and in the morning. We will remember them.” 
  • Ending with the laying of the wreath by Tyresha from Year 11; then followed by a whole school two minutes silence.

It was a very moving occasion.
