75th Anniversary of the D Day Landings – June 2019

Bayley, Ethan and Rhun represented the school today (2oth June) at the 75th Anniversary of the D Day Landings at the Schools Memorial Service at Chatelherault Lodge. They had the special honour of laying flowers at the Memorial Cairn and Rhun laid a handmade poppy wreath that he had created for Remembrance Day. The boys met a war veteran from the D Day Landings and listened to fascinating stories about that period of history. Well done boys for being such star pupils today.
