HOHS Remembers…

Today is Remembrance Day and this morning Years 3-13 gathered for a special assembly in the barn to commemorate those who gave their lives in two world wars and in numerous other conflicts since 1946.

There were poppies and a candle on the stage as Mr Crump and Rev Derek McLean led the service , beginning with the much-loved hymn “I Vow to Thee My Country“.

A minute’s silence was observed – an opportunity to think about those who had died in war.

The service ended with Sixth Formers reading prayers for peace, and the singing of the hymn Make me a channel of your peace.

Meanwhile, in Year 1, pupils have been learning about the significance of poppies and making their own to wear.  Sahara-Star told me, “The poppies help us to remember brave men who were in horrible wars and some died so that the world would be more calm.”
