Remembrance Day Reflections

12th November 21

The school values of Tolerance, Kindness and Respect were the key themes of our Remembrance Day service, when the whole school community came together. Here are a few words from our Heads of School, Charlotte and Jessica, on what this means to them.

“Although many of us will never have to make the same sacrifices taken by the soldiers who bravely fight in wars, we can still learn so much by looking at the acts of selflessness taken by all of those who have served. It reminds us of the importance of being courageous and taking strides to not just help ourselves but others. That is why Remembrance Day is so important, and we continue to honour those such as Lt Colonel Hebert Jones VC, OBE at DLD.”

Jessica, Head of School

“The Remembrance event and two-minute silence held at 11am in the DLD atrium to remember the people who died in the wars around the world was a moving event. We heard the poem “In Flanders Field”, reflections of the Great Wars by Paul Schoonenberg and we were educated about the importance of the poppy.”

Charlotte, Head of School
