The School held a Remembrance Service on Friday 9 November as we do each year. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Armistice and we were joined by a number of local dignitaries and relatives of five of the men commemorated on the school’s memorial. We were particularly pleased to be joined by a relative of Walter Brown, a Stanley teacher who was killed in the First World War, whose picture we put on the memorial each year.
Headteacher, Ian Dickinson led the service which included children placing 67 commemorative pebbles on the memorial, representing every man commemorated.
The Last Post was played by members of the school’s brass group before the two minutes silence at 11am.
Wreaths were laid on the memorial as the children sang Dona Nobis Pachem.
