Students and staff at John Kyrle High School gathered at 11am on Friday, November 10 to observe two minutes silence to recognise and honour those who have given their lives whilst serving our country.

The bell was rung at 11am and student, Connor Edwards played the Last Post out on the apron. Staff, sixth form students and Sea Cadets, Oliver Almond and Griff Roberts, who proudly stood to attention in their uniforms, joined Connor.

Ben Washington read "In Flanders Fields" during the ceremony.

Those in lesson listened to a recording of Connor playing the Last Post and watched a presentation of images which encouraged thought and reflection during the silence. 

Representatives from John Kyrle High School attended the Parade and Act of Remembrance at the War Memorial at the Prospect. This was followed by a service at St Mary’s Church.
