Lest we Forget

As a school we have remembered the men and women from World War One through a series of events. Forgotten Voices WWI Commemoration Evening was held on Thursday 8th November. The concert was extremely moving with first-hand accounts from WWI and well known songs. All donations from the evening went to the Royal British Legion poppy appeal.
Tadcaster Grammar School paid their respects with one minutes silence on Friday 9th November. The last post was played along with readings from Mrs Wilson and Students. Also on Friday, Pop Choir students were given the opportunity to sing as part of a choir of 1000 other local school children. This was another moving event with readings and songs.

During VT lessons poppies were produced and special messages were written on them. The poppies were then put on display in St Mary’s Church in Tadcaster as part of their Remembrance Day service. Students took part in the church service reading moving stories.

Many thanks to the students, parents and staff who have donated family artefacts for our WWI and TGS display. A large number of students have seen the display and were amazed by the stories told. We would like to now invite parents and families to come along and see it. The display will be open to parents after school on Wednesday 21st and Wednesday 28th November in the Independent Learning Centre. If you cannot make these times and would like to see it please contact Mrs Brett our school librarian.
