Remembrance Day Assembly

Posted by SJV - Monday 9 November 2020

Parents, alumni and members of the wider school community are very welcome to join us online on Wednesday 11 November to commemorate the members of the School who have died in the line of duty. Our Remembrance Day Assembly will be broadcast at the following link: https://strschool.co.uk/network/remembrance.

The whole school will take part, the bell will ring in school at 10.50am and the commemoration will start at 10.52. At the end of the reading, members of the school community will be asked to stand for the Exhortation:

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.

And respond collectively with the words:

We will remember them

After this, the Last Post will be sounded during the Silence that will end with the Reveille. During this time, the School Captains will lay the wreath at our memorial.

We will remain standing for the prayers and until after the National Anthem is played.
