STUDENTS from North Bromsgrove High School were joined by members of the local community for the annual Remembrance Service to pay tribute to previous pupils who have lost their lives in war.
This year, students Jack Turner-Reynolds and Keira Turner- Reynolds were accompanied by Seb Lunn and Jacob Colston to represent the school and their cadets.
Attending from the Bromsgrove community were Kate Harris, also a parent at the school, Rev Ray Khan, the Bromsgrove Royal British Legion chaplain, who played The Last Post on Bugle, the town’s RBL chairman Patrick Smith and standard bearer Burt Sherwood.
The senior prefects have been selling poppies in school with thanks to Poppy Appeal organiser Jules Evans and staff and students have been decorating their classroom doors with the Poppy Appeal posters.
The school is hoping to achieve its best year for fund-raising for all its local good causes.
A school spokesperson said: “We thank them all for taking time out of their busy schedules to come to school and remember with us.”
The day is a significant moment in the school calendar which enhances students’ understanding through CARE lessons and assemblies.
Last year, when the Covid-19 restrictions were in place, North Bromsgrove High School created a poignant remembrance film which still holds relevance today. Click below to view it.
