DUCKS commemorates Remembrance Day 2023

DUCKS commemorates Remembrance Day 2023

On Wednesday, November 8, DUCKS held its annual Remembrance assembly. The children were joined for the poignant occasion by five Senior School students who played the Last Post and Reveille on traditional bugles, and the Senior Deputy, Mrs Fiona Angel. The children reflected upon and thanked all the service people and animals who have served or are currently serving in the Armed Forces, followed by a two-minute silence.

On the morning of Friday, November 10, at the eleventh hour, each child from DUCKS placed a handmade poppy on Eller Bank in front of the main DUCKS building for those who made the ultimate sacrifice, commemorating the 105th anniversary of the end of the First World War.
