Remembrance services took place today at both Truro School and Truro School Prep as we gathered as a community to remember the fallen and give thanks to those who have sacrificed so much in conflict.
The Senior School came together in the Assembly Hall to reflect on the importance of remembering the fallen. Our Sixth Formers placed a cross for each member of the Truro School Community whose life was lost in wars spanning from the First World War to the conflict in Afghanistan from 2001-2014.
We listened to the words of Laurence Binyon:
They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
Following a moving rendition of The Last Post, performed by Ben, the School observed a minute’s silence. The Girl Choristers then sang ‘For Remembrance by Paul Drayton, which uses Binyon’s words.
At Prep, the children also remembered those whose lives have been lost and held a minute’s silence after The Last Post. Following a closing prayer from Mrs Issaka, Year 6s Sam and Sarah laid a Remembrance Day wreath on our memorial stone.
