To honour Remembrance Day two assemblies were held on Thursday, November 10.
At the junior school assembly, following a performance by the Gr. 5/6 Choir, the Head Girl and Vice-Head Girl of the Junior School concluded the assembly by giving a “peace medal” to every student as they crossed the stage.
The peace medals are simply a rectangle of paper that says “Peace” on the bottom. The girls attached them to their sweaters or shirts to wear with their poppies. There was enough room for them to decorate the paper with something meaningful to themselves, such as message of peace; name or initials of a friend or family member who served in the military, or a peace symbol.
Veteran Peter Bone was invited to speak at the senior school assembly, and the senior choir also performed.
