Aureus Remembers

Our whole school community came together today to honour all those who have fallen in the line of duty.

Students that are in the military, Cadets, Guides or Scouts were invited to wear their uniforms into school and were joined by our service children to form a short service held in our courtyard. Sophie, Lorcan and William presented beautiful readings, some of which they had written themselves, before Mrs Burbage, our Head of Music, played The Last Post.

The whole school community then took part in a two minute silence.

Members of the Leadership team, staff and students made their way to the front of the school to lay our wreaths in our garden of remembrance. We have been inviting our school community to decorate rocks this year to lay in remembrance. The display is quite breathtaking.

Ms Saul, Assistant Headteacher for Personal Development said, “Showing remembrance is very important to Aureus. We have a large community of service children and young people in the cadet forces. The short service is always an emotional one and this year we came together to remember. One of our students wrote an incredibly moving speech about his father who is in the armed forces, he read it confidently and with real pride.

She continued, “I feel proud of our students on a daily basis but today they really excelled themselves. I would also like to thank Miss Hunt-Brough and Mrs Burnett with all their support today. They had a vision for this year's memorial garden and they have worked hard to make this happen by running lunchtime rock decorating sessions and setting it up this morning. The photos are stunning.”
