Remembrance Day

On Thursday 11th November, Meeting for Worship was especially poignant as the community remembered the service and sacrifice of all the men, women, boys and girls, that have defended our freedoms and protected our way of life. A stillness fell over the Park as Sixth Form students Ollie and Taran played the haunting notes of ‘The Last Post’ at 11.00am.

Outside, at the Peckover Peace Memorial, Fryer respectively laid a beautiful wreath made from flora and fauna on the Park, by members of the Amnesty International Club. In nearby Forbury Gardens, a small group of students representing Year 7 to Upper Sixth, attended the Trooper Potts Berkshire Memorial Service on behalf of the School.

The following day, Friday 12th November, marked the beginning of Peace Week. Following online tutorials, each tutor group made their own paper cranes to collectively create a remarkable display symbolising harmony; the crane is a Japanese symbol of hope and the story of Sadako Sasaki has increased awareness of its symbolism in the international community.
