This week was a poignant one with Remembrance Day on the 11th November.
It is an opportunity to remember those members of the armed forces who have fought and died in the line of duty. It is also an opportunity for our students at St. Luke's Academy to think of others which runs well with our school value of the term - Kindness.
Throughout the week Remembrance day was referred to throughout the curriculum whether this be in assemblies, activities or discussions in class or even a few stories from some of our staff members who used to be in the armed forces!
The highlight of the week though was at 11am on the 11th when the whole school took part in a two minute silence as a mark of respect (another school value). The only noise you could hear was Mr Jones, with his cornet, playing a fantastic and moving rendition of the last post on the field. The beautiful sound drifted into and permeated the school through many open windows and with lots of faces watching out as well!
Later that day Yr7 students attended a festival of Remembrance at the walled garden in Lydiard Park. They represented the school fantastically and really felt proud (and a little sad) of all of our service men and women who have fought and died for our country.
