Rememberance Day 

This morning our Chaplaincy Team presented a whole school assembly around Rememberance Day.

Remembrance Day (also called Armistice Day or Poppy Day) is a Memorial Day celebrated in Commonwealth countries. Remembrance Day is all about commemorating those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country in the line of duty. It also celebrates and supports veterans of combat. Originally, the day commemorated Armistice Day and the end of the First World War, but has subsequently become a memorial for all those who have lost their lives in any conflict. 

Remembrance Day is celebrated every year on November 11th. The reason we observe Remembrance Day on November 11th is because hostilities formally ended "at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month" in 1918. Many countries around the world will hold a minute, a moment or two minutes silence at 11am on the 11th as a mark of commemoration and respect. Remembrance Sunday is also celebrated, particularly in the UK - this is commemorated on the Sunday closest to the 11th.

Remembrance Day will be on Saturday, November 11th, and Remembrance Sunday is on November 12th.
