Princethorpe Falls Silent In Remembrance
On Friday 10 November, the College community gathered together outside on the school playground to remember the bravery and selfless sacrifice made by so many of our country's service men and women.
Deputy Head (Pastoral), Beth Sharpe opened the proceedings with a prayer. Then Year 7 pupils, Sam Barlow, Gilbert Millward-Boyton, Austin Newbold and Adelaide Teeton read out a thought-provoking reading Why Do We Wear A Poppy? before College trumpeters, Year 12s, Chloe Hurworth and Robyn Shaw, sounded the moving and melancholic notes of the Last Post.
The two-minute silence offered all a time for reflection, a shared moment to remember those who have given their lives for the peace and freedom we enjoy today. Sixth Form students, Seb Bainbridge, Blessing Katanda, Alice Minshull, Reneé Ndungu, Mia Samra, Megan Shipton and Ben Smith, read out For The Fallen before the College community sang the hymn Abide With Me.
A wreath was hung at the Pupils’ Entrance by Headmaster, Grove du Toit. Then Foundation Principal, Ed Hester, brought the proceedings to a close with a prayer for peace.
Thanks to our College musicians, Robyn Shaw, Chloe Hurworth, Theo Cowlishaw, Jasper Nicholls, Louie Tilstone, Gilbert Millward-Boyton and Alex Lawrence who played during the service.
