Remembrance Sunday, which fell on 12 November this year, is a day for the nation to remember and honour those who have sacrificed themselves to secure and protect our freedom.
At Heathcote School, we paid tribute to those who have suffered or died in previous wars in a whole school gathering in the large playground. Mrs Barber played the last post and we upheld the tradition of a minute silence from Nursery to Year 6.
The Year 5 and 6 pupils also shared two minutes silence and the sharing of poetry and readings with Danbury Park School and St John’s Primary at the Danbury memorial.
Our Head Boy, Isaac, and Head Girl, Eva, laid a wreath of poppies on behalf of our school to ensure that no one was forgotten as the nation united to honour all those who have suffered or died in war.
