Remembrance Day services are held around the UK to commemorate and remember those who served the country in two world wars and also in the more recent conflicts.
This morning, Kirkham Grammar Senior School pupils and staff held their annual Remembrance Day Service led by our Senior NCOs. During the service, our School Captains, Aaron Thomas and Libby Baxter, read the bidding and a Bible passage taken from the Gospel of St John. KGS Headmaster, Mr Berry, led prayers before the whole school fell quiet for the two minute silence, followed by 'The Last Post' played by Lower Sixth Form pupil, Poppy Taylor. At the end of the service, the platform party moved to the Old Hall to lay wreaths at the First and Second World War memorial plaques.
Our Junior, Infant and Pre-School pupils and staff also gathered together wearing their poppies with pride in the school hall. They welcomed Lower Sixth Form student, Poppy Taylor, to play the 'Last Post' and J4 pupils, William, Sofia, Tilly, Mia, Katy, Esme, Evie, Torrin, Charles and Kyle, contributed magnificently with their poems and readings.
Both were very poignant services which allowed the whole school community to reflect and remember all those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
