Hazeley and Remembrance

Hazeley and Remembrance

On Friday 9th November, Hazeley had a two minute silence followed by the Last Post played by Mr Swales. Students had a form time session to discuss John McCrae’s poem ‘In Flanders Fields’ and also had the opportunity to wear their Scout, Guide and Cadet uniforms.

Felicity Jackson, Holly Mellor and Jasmin te Wierik Durrant wore their uniforms to remember 100 years since the end of the First World War.

Jasmin represented the Guides Rangers and said “Remembrance is important because our world wouldn’t be the same without those who fought in wars.”

Holly represented Army Cadets Bucks ACF and said of Remembrance “We should remember everyone who made our country what it is.”

William Havard was a keen Welsh rugby player who became a chaplain to the forces during the First World War and was awarded the Military Cross.

“The greatest glory of a free-born people is to transmit that freedom to their children.”
