Bishop Luffa Marks the Armistice - posted 12th November

Remembrance Service 2020 Website 2Bishop Luffa makes a point of coming together to mark the Armistice, and this year was no exception. Although current restrictions prevented us physically meeting as a School community, we were able to come together virtually, and all be part of a whole school event. Just before 11am, teachers and classes across the School (and some parents) joined a live feed, and were able to see a short service of commemoration. After an introduction and opening prayer from Mr Hindman, Mr Bonney (ex-forces) read an excerpt from ‘For the Fallen’ by Laurence Binyon. This was followed by Freddie Lynas of 9Otter (ably supported by Alex Wilburn (9Otter) and Mrs Bowen-Melfi) playing the Last Post. At this point the whole School fell silent for 2 minutes from 11am. At 11.02 the reveille was sounded by Freddie, and Freya Jones (one of our School Captains) read the Kohima Epitaph. The service ended with a wreath laying ceremony by Mr Hindman, Mr Bonney and Freya. Although this has been a year of immense challenges in so many ways it was heartening to see the School come together in unity to remember the sacrifices made so that we may enjoy the freedoms of today. My thanks must go to all involved, including those ‘behind the scenes’ who worked to make it available remotely.
