“Students lined the balconies and stairwells, holding the names of family members who were lost in conflict.

“I laid a wreath on behalf of the Town Council and paid my respects.

“During the service and the silence, despite thousands of students in close proximity, you could have heard a pin drop.

“What an honour it was to attend the school’s remembrance event.

“The students and staff of the school did the town and themselves proud and their clear and profound respect for those who have fallen to keep us all safe was evident and obvious.”
