Assembly 10/11/14

We gathered together today to think about Remembrance Sunday and to get ready for our Act of Remembrance tomorrow.

Mr White talked about the medals of his grandad who survived as a soldier of the Hertfordshire Regiment in World War I; his Uncle Douglas who didn’t return from World War II; and his Dad, William, who did return from World War II. We looked at their medals.

We thought about the fact that many of us have links in our family history to people who have been affected by war.
We looked at a replica St John’s Pocket Gospel which would have been issued to all soldiers in World War I and thought about how they might have used it.

We focused on John 15: 9-17.
“Love one another as I have loved you.”
We thought about why we would be holding a two minute’s silence at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month. Please join us for our Act of Remembrance if you can.
