Remembrance Day Service
This morning, the whole of North Leamington School came together outside in the school courtyard for a Remembrance Service.
The service saw approximately 1,500 students and staff congregate as a whole school to reflect, contemplate and remember the service and sacrifice of the Armed Forces community from Britain and the Commonwealth along with young men from our school.
Head Teacher, Mike Lowdell, opened the ceremony with an address to the school, followed by the Last Post played on the trombone by Year 9 student Martin Shearer, before a 2 minute silence. Our Senior Student Leaders read a Remembrance poem before the laying of a wreath by our cadet students.
Head Teacher Mike Lowdell said of the occasion: “I am so proud of our staff and students coming together to show their respect at this remembrance event every year. The ceremony is an important way to commemorate those that gave their lives in the Great Wars and a reminder of the sacrifices made by our service personnel, who have served and continue to serve today. Our continued thoughts are with those directly affected by the conflict in Ukraine.”
