Remembrance Day 2022

14 Nov 2022
Written by Hannah Carrick

Lest We Forget.

A moving and poignant remembrance service was held at school on Friday morning for Armistice Day.  The service included an interview between Headmaster, Mr Stapleton and our two Ukrainian students, who were so articulate in their description of how the war with Russia has affected their families and their feelings of guilt having left loved ones in Ukraine.  

OWBA President Suzy Conchie (80-84G) read the Roll of Honour and laid a wreath on behalf of the OWBA.
