At the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, the whole school stood silent for 2 minutes to remember the fallen from both wars and all conflicts since. Prior to that, all the children had placed a poppy around a cross before the Roll of Honour for the village was read; the name of each soldier was also placed around the cross.

An extract from Laurence Binyons Poem, ‘For the Fallen’ was then read, before a whistle sounded the start of the silence.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
The silence was broken by The Last Post, played on the trumpet by former pupil Sam Kail-Dyke.
