Junior Girls Mark Remembrance Day
Wednesday, 11 November 2015
The whole of Hesketh House marked Remembrance Day in a moving 11th November assembly.
Year 6 girls led proceedings from the main stage, reciting poetry and recalling key moments in the history of how we commemorate those that fell in war, from the writing of the war poem In Flanders Field by Canadian physician John McCrae in 1915 to the introduction of the poppy by Moina Michael as a symbol of remembrance to the very first armistice service.
The assembly concluded with a very moving rendition by the whole school of Remember by Emily Barden, which can be viewed here.
