Remembrance Day has been observed in Commonwealth member states since the end of the First World War in 1918, to honour members of the armed forces who have died in the line of duty fighting for, or alongside the UK.

At Sir Jonathan North Girls’ College, we delivered assemblies to all year groups across the week, which included the role of Sikh soldiers during WW2. During tutor time, a member of staff presented to students about their family’s real-life experience of WW2.

In our reception area, we have created a display to showcase different coloured poppies, with information about the contributions of different groups of people to WW1 and WW2. Poppies, supplied by the British Legion and white poppies from Remember and Disarm, have been sold every break time by our student council.

On the eleventh minute of the eleventh hour, all staff and students participated in a two minutes’ silence to commemorate those who have served our country and the Commonwealth.
