Remembrance Day 2014
At 11.00am on Tuesday the 11th November 2014 all students at Selby High School remembered those who had given their lives in past and present conflicts.
Prefects sold Poppies on behalf of the British Legion and students at the school who are members of uniformed organisations where encouraged to wear their full uniforms for the day
The two minutes silence of remembrance took place in every classroom, with 1st World War poems projected on whiteboards and the Last Post and Reveille played to mark the silence.
Stuart Lewis, Deputy Headteacher stated:
It is essential, in this centennial year of commemoration of WW1 that students at the school understand the importance of past conflicts on their current life and that they recognise past sacrifice and conflicts that are still going on around the world today. It is a fundamental aspect of education to try and instil a comprehension of modern European history, the loss by so many and the need to remember each year, lest we forget in future generations.
