Remembrance Day

In 1918, on the 11th day of the 11th month, at 11 o’clock, the First World War ended. This is why in the UK, every year, on 11th November, at 11 o’clock, an act of respect takes place, observing a two minute silence in remembrance of those who died in the two world wars.

Nowadays, “The Remembrance Day” is recognised all over the world as a way to acknowledge the sacrifice of all those who died during armed conflicts, regardless of colour, religion or nationality, a way of remembering them forever.

In our school, we always hold a ceremony to commemorate that date. On Friday 10th November, at 11 0’clock in the morning, all the students and teachers in the school, from year 3 upwards, kept a two minute silence in a really moving assembly that we held, in order to celebrate the “Remembrance Day”. Two beautiful poems about the sadness and sorrow caused by the loss of so many young lives, were read. We explained how terrible it is that still today so many women, men and children die due to cruel, horrible wars and how we must all help so that one day we can live in a world in peace.

It was absolutely wonderful to see all the students, of all ages, taking part in the ceremony with such a thoughtful, respectful attitude.
