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.”

School holds an Act of Remembrance

On Friday 9th November the school gathered for an act of remembrance in the barn. It was a special service to commemorate members of the armed forces who had given their lives in two world wars and in numerous other conflicts since 1946.

At the beginning of the service the Headmaster spoke about the significance of wearing a poppy and reminded the girls that even today our national security is being maintained by the vigilance of service men and women who work in the army, navy and air force.

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

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

The Headmaster, the Revd Robin Myerscough with Anna and Erin, whose father until recently was serving with the Light Dragoons.
