Today we remember those who have served our country in conflicts past and present, Particularly those who left these shores to take up arms in World War 1. The Great War to end all wars sadly failed in that endeavour, but the things we often take for granted - freedom and democracy - were and have been won and defended by the ultimate sacrifice of many. Proudly, the tradition of remembrance is stronger than ever and Remembrance Day remains a vital part of our school heritage each November.
