Remembrance Day 2020

The students and staff of Slindon College took part in a 2 minute silence on November 11th 2020 to honour those that have fallen in war.

Our usual Slindon College flag was replaced with that of the poppy for our special Remembrance Week; and accompanying the flag, a silhouette soldier, which was made by the College's Head of Design Technology, Mr Burbidge.

This followed a virtual school assembly beamed live from the Great Hall to classrooms where each of the four houses produced a display board for remembrance on the theme of a certain poppy colour and its meaning. Each house contributed a selection of war poetry readings read beautifully by students from their house.

The students have also been learning about remembrance in Humanities this week. They have been writing thank you messages to the soldiers for the poppy display and presenting their own family history research that was completed over half term.

A wonderful effort by all and brilliant to see the boys finding out what their families did during the war.
