The College observed Remembrance Day today with the Infant and Junior School attending a special church service and the Senior School holding a Remembrance Assembly.
The children from the Infant and Junior School attended a Service of Remembrance at the Aldford Village Church of St John the Baptist. The Names of the Fallen were read out by village resident Mr Weaver, the I & J Choir lead the singing of hymns and the House and Vice House Captains read poetry and prayers.
At the Senior School, the special Remembrance Assembly commenced with choral music from the Chapel Choir, a moving account of the Charlie Brown and Franz Stigler incident from 20 December 1943, a real life story where courage and compassion were displayed.
The two minute silence was observed by all pupils and their attention and interest during all readings was absolute.
In addition to the College’s own Remembrance Services, staff and pupils attended the Saighton Church of England Primary School service in Saighton Village. The service and Last Post was led and played by Reverend Jules and the children from Saighton Primary sang and read poems and prayers.
The 2-minute silence was impeccably observed and following this, Sixth Form students Mollie and Tristan laid a wreath on behalf of the Abbey Gate College Community.
We would like to thank everyone at Saighton Primary for hosting the event and enabling us to play a small part in the Service.
