Remembrance Day at Belmont

Our Call to Remembrance Service was very special, as we remembered those who have lost their lives during world wars and other conflicts. The day started with pupils lining up in the courtyard in front of the Chapel whilst two drummers played a military beat.
We were fortunate enough to welcome Reverend Jo James, who led a heartfelt service and prayer, which led into the minute silence. At 11:00 am, the bells rang, and the minute silence began. Attendees showed their respects by bowing and thinking of the lives lost during wars and conflicts.
After the pupils and staff stood for the minute silence, two pupils played ‘The Last Post’, on their trumpets as the school reflected on the effects and outcome of the war. Olivia (8SM) then read the poem, ‘In Flanders Field’, which added to the atmosphere of reflection. Last, Reverend Jo James finalised the service with a prayer. The service was impactful and left everyone thinking about the loss of life that war causes and the brave sacrifices made for our freedom.
