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 Cadets, Guides or Scouts were invited to wear their uniforms into school and were part of a short service in the quad, along with our service children.  Sophie, Warren and Patrick 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 were able to reuse the beautiful decorated rocks again this year to lay in remembrance along with large paper poppies and our lone soldier. 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 read a poem called ‘I serve too’, 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, Miss Robins and Mrs Burbage for all their support today. They had a vision for this year's memorial garden and they have worked hard to make this happen. The photos are stunning.”

This Sunday we will also be represented in the Didcot Remembrance parade where Aureus will walk with students from other local schools, members of the military and veterans to lay a wreath in memory. 

Lest we forget.
