B Cador: November 2018
'They came from our village. They went to our school'.
It was lovely to see so many parents joining us for this year's Remembrance Assembly. It felt very special to be joined by Kal Barker and Beth Lawlor, relatives of the Dale brothers, who once attended Wrenbury and who didn't come home from the First World War. Kal's photo wreaths of each of the brothers was a poignant reminder of the sacrifice our young men, who (quoting Michael Morpurgo) went to war 'because country called, because they knew it had to be done, that unless they went to fight there could be no peace.'
Members of Wrenbury and District Royal British Legion (Rev Alison, Rob Vine and Liz Speed), Andrew Taylor (our school governor) and David Pegram, a Help the Heroes Ambassador (and dad to Kimberley and Declan) all played key roles in our assembly. The children who took an active role did so beautifully to make the whole event both moving and memorable.
Thank you to all who attended, all who contributed and all who bought poppies to support the great work of the Royal British Legion to make this morning's Remembrance Assembly special for us all.
They will not be forgotten.
Enjoy the photos which present a visual reminder of the assembly.
