Remembrance Day 11th of the 11th.

12th November 2015.

Yesterday on the 11th of the 11th at 11am will held a minutes silence as a mark of respect to those who served our country in past wars. We also though about those who are currently serving in an effort to encourage peace in the world. In assembly we learned about how the poppy has become the symbol for remembrance day. We sang a song called “We will remember”, we prayed and we listened to the seniors reading the poem “In Flander’s Fields” by John McCrae.


In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
