Cumberland School mark Remembrance Day
Pupils and staff from Cumberland School recently paid tribute to mark Remembrance Day.
On the 11th November they gathered in the school’s front garden to take part in a service to remember members of the armed forces who have died in the line of duty.
A year 10 pupil read John McCrae’s poem ‘In Flanders Field’ and then pupils laid their handmade crosses and poppies they made in class in the lead-up to the day. Instructor, Andrew Larrington who is also a veteran, wore his service medals and read 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.
‘The Last Post’ a poem, was also read followed by a two-minute silence which everyone observed.
Pupils were engaged with their learning experiences and showed the utmost respect.
