Remembrance at Herne Bay High

During the week commencing 5th November, the school was very proud to lead students in remembering those that gave their lives in service for our country during war and conflict.

Mr Boyes took assemblies each morning talking to students about conflicts that our armed forces have been involved in and the significance of the poppy to the remembrance season. These assemblies were very lucky to be treated to performances by both the school choir and the Maniacals Drama Company who both performed pieces which made students think and reflect on war and those that serve.

The culmination of the week of events was a 2 minutes silence, held on Friday 9th November, at 11 am, during which the whole school community stopped to think about those that have fallen in active service. This was preceded by Miss Hobbs reading the poem 'In Flanders Fields' to the school, along with Mr Harris asking everyone to reflect on the act of remembrance.
