Trinity School Remembers
12th November 2018
The Senior department came together today to commemorate Remembrance Day as a whole community of students, staff, governors and parents.
The chapel was full and the intensity of the occasion was inspiring and uplifting. The students had been focusing on the 100th Anniversary of the end of World War 1 in an extended tutorial prior to the service which draws to a close a week of preparation for today and this weekend’s events in Teignmouth and across the country. Poems written and read by Starr Johnson and Lottie Brown captured the atmosphere of the day.
At the end of the service the entire Senior department laid remembrance crosses around the CCF drum head in a united act of commemoration. At the same time the Prep department also did the same in a united act. These crosses which bear the names of soldiers from both sides in the great wars will form the heart of our remembrance garden in the science courtyard.
This installation means that Remembrance is not one day each year – we give thanks for the service of others every day we pass them.
