Remembrance Day 2022
This year’s Remembrance day on 11th November was an opportunity to remember the service and sacrifice of all those that have defended our freedoms. We were visited by our local member of parliament who marked this special occasion. It was an honour that Stephen Metcalfe MP could visit Ortu Gable Hall school and take part in our Remembrance service. We are proud that the whole school came together as a community and engaged in this year's Remembrance commemoration.
Remembrance Day is a memorial day observed in commonwealth member states since the end of the First World War to honour armed forces members who have died in the line of duty. The reason poppies are used to remembering those who have given their lives in battle is because they are the flowers which grew on the battlefields after World War II ended.
Again, Ortu Gable Hall school has set the standard very high and we have done a fantastic job again.
Mr Gary Lewis, Interim Principal said “I was delighted to attend a particularly thoughtful service and see all of our students remembering those who have fought hard for our freedoms and serve to defend our democratic freedoms and way of life. All who were involved can be very proud.”
“We will always remember the enormous sacrifice so many gave today and every day. We unite to honour the fallen from across the world that gave their lives so that we can be free.”
“It is so important that the sacrifices made on our behalf are never forgotten. It is very encouraging that today’s young people continue to recognise that and take an active part in Remembrance”
Our students also worked tirelessly to create an amazing display in the LRC to recognise the lives lost in battle. Lest we forget.
