Act of Remembrance

This morning, we welcomed families from across the Rupert House community to join us for our annual Act of Remembrance.

As is tradition at Rupert House, Mr Armitage, who led the service, was joined by Father Jeremy and local historian, Mike Willoughby. Maya, this term's Head of School, introduced the service. She was followed by Daisy who is joint Head of School, and Year 6 pupils, Oscar and Lara, who gave readings.

Andy Cogden played The Last Post on his trumpet, ahead of the two-minute silence at 11am. The end of the period of silence was then marked with a rendition of 'Reville'.

Year 6 pupil, Piper, concluded the service with her recital of 'In Flanders Fields' before Father Jeremy gave a final prayer.

Together, the Heads of School and our youngest boy in Reception walked to our garden of Remembrance to lay the main wreath. They were followed by representatives from each of the classes who had all made their own wreaths from a variety of different materials.  

As always, thank you to Father Jeremy, Andy Cogden and Mike Willoughby for their contributions to our Act of Remembrance.
