This morning, our Kirkham Grammar Junior, Infant and Pre-School pupils and staff gathered together outside, wearing their poppies with pride, to hold their annual Remembrance Day Service.

Following Mrs O'Donoghue's opening welcome, Head Girl, Philippa Hancock, beautifully read the poem, 'In Flander's Field'.

KGJS were delighted to welcome back former Junior School pupil and KGS Fourth Year pupil, Oscar Harkins, to play the Last Post, before our Senior Prefects; Rosa Gill, Jasmine Stirrup, Francesca Durston, Lucie Wilson and Josie Trow recited the poem, 'The Inquisitive Mind of a Child'.

The final prayer was gracefully delivered by Head Boy, Samuel Smith, before each of the year groups were given the opportunity to have a look at the wonderful Remembrance Day display created this week by all of the pupils. 

It was a very poignant service which allowed the whole school community to reflect and remember all those who laid down their lives for us, whilst also observing the guidelines due to the current situation.
