Today Hinchingbrooke students and staff took time to remember those men and woman who have lost their lives fighting for their country.
During a very moving service, sixth form students read out the names and details of former Hinchingbrooke students from a roll of honour hanging in the entrance hall to Hinchingbrooke House which commemorates the schools “old boys” who had fallen in the two world wars. This year, sixth former Lucy Felce gave a reading and sound of the “Last Post” was played by Zoe Perkins, a year 11 student to mark the period of silence. The sound of the trumpet echoed through the halls of the house adding a poignancy to the ceremony.
The Principal Andrew Goulding led a prayer and students also remembered Hinchingbrooke student Ellie Keeling who had died tragically this year.
All students in school will be discussing the theme of Remembrance and Armistice Day in school as their “Theme of the week” to help raise awareness of social issues and reinforce school ethos and values.
