Archbishop's Collective Thoughts

Year 9's pay their respects

Last week the scheduled Year 9 trip to Belgium and France had to be postponed due to the recent terror attacks in Paris and subsequent worries about safety.  However, The Archbishop's School felt it was important that it still took the time to pay it's respects to those British soldiers who had sacrificed so much for so many and also honour those who were affected by the recent attacks in Paris.


Mr. Davies organised for a representative from each Year 9 form to lay two wreaths at the Dane John War Memorial on Wednesday 25th November.  The students who attended were Emma Jones (Matthew), Jackalyn Sellens (Mark), Benjamin Patch (Luke), Ella-Thea Jackson-Harris (John), Courtney Brown (Paul) and Anthony Lewis (Peter).  Students took two beautiful wreaths that were ordered to be laid during the Last Post Ceremony at the Menin Gate in Ypres, and placed them next to the war memorial.  Students spent time reflecting on recent events and how important it is to learn from the brave soldiers who have fought to defend Britain's safety.  Emma read the poem 'The Soldier' by Rupert Brooke.  Photos were taken courtesy of Mark Harris (6 Matthew) and Adam Wilkin (6 Mark).
