Messages of Remembrance

Last week we held our annual service of Remembrance, which saw students in their group uniforms come together in the Memorial Garden to pay their respects to those lost in battle.

The students took turns to lay crosses displaying poignant messages written by tutor groups and individuals across the school:

Give two minutes for their forever. 100 years never forgotten.
We thank you for your sacrifice.
You gave your today for our tomorrow.
Mankind must put an end to war or war will put an end to mankind.
We will always remember and never forget.
Forever grateful for your service. May you all rest in peace.
You’ve fallen for our futures.
William Shakespeare: ‘Praising what is lost makes remembrance dear.’

In remembrance to all that sacrificed their lives so ours will be peaceful.

To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.
Never forget those that lost their lives so we could have our tomorrow.
For those brave men and women who chose their sacrifice for our freedom today. We will remember them.
They gave their tomorrow so we could have our today.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning – we will remember them.
Shoulder to shoulder with all who served.

The more we sweat in peace, the less we bleed in war.
Poppies painted red by the blood of the fallen and black by the sorrow of the living.
Those who we love can never be more than a thought away. Thank you for our freedom.
You were the ones who fought for our lives, now we are going to fight for the memories of yours.
We will not forget those who gave us so much to remember.
You fought in wars, now may you rest in peace. Your sacrifice will not be forgotten.
Thank you for giving your today for our tomorrow: to all of the heroes who saved our country throughout history and in the future.
Forever in your debt.
