On Monday 11th November, a very special assembly was held to mark Remembrance Day 2019.
It was an informative, atmospheric and very moving assembly, organised by the Senior and Sixth Form Leaders, we learnt of the struggles and hardships during the world wars, and why we should still remember the lives of the men and women who went to war, and their sacrifice, to this day.
Many thanks to the following girls for the effort and commitment they put into planning this humbling morning.
In Flanders Fields
The poem by John McCrae
In Flanders' fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place: and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders' fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe;
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high,
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders' Fields.
