Wycombe High falls silent to pay Remembrance respects

Wycombe High paid its respects as its Remembrance events concluded with a moving and poignant assembly after a week of poetry and fundraising.

Sad that the students could not enjoy their traditional whole-school event on the playing fields, classes watched the powerful 11 November event from their classrooms. Following the impeccable two-minute silence, the sound of the Last Post echoed around the corridors proved a powerful symbol of the school’s thanks and respect.

The assembly was the central event of a week which marked the 102nd anniversary of when the guns fell silent on the Western Front, drawing to an end the First World War. Each day the school released a Poem of Remembrance read by a different student which were hosted on the school’s Youtube channel (and can be viewed below). Fundraising also continued throughout the week, with the school raising £670 for the Royal British Legion. The fund is still open and you can contribute here https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/whspoppyappeal.
