On Friday 10th November Etone College observed Remembrance, as we paid our respect to those who have stood for our rights and protected us from dangers. Each year it is a sombre moment as pupils around the school, along with staff share in the two minute silence as tribute to those we have lost.
As part of the build up to the day our pupils were able to be part of form time activities and attend a Remembrance assembly which underlined the need for us to remember the sacrifice made for our own liberty. As part of these events pupils were encouraged to link our Fundamental British Values and Etone Values such as caring and being supportive.
During the day itself at 11am all pupils observed the two minute silence followed by the last post. During this time our cadets were taking part in two simultaneous parades of remembrance. The first, our Trust-wide parade featuring representatives and Headteachers from each school in the trust. Whilst we were proud of all cadets, we were especially proud of Etone cadets who were immaculate in their appearance and support.
During the second parade our pupils at Etone took part in a parade as they laid a wreath in support of the event. Our pupils have been focusing on practicing to represent Etone and the CCF at the Nuneaton Parade as well. Be sure to support them.
