AGS Remembers - Lest We Forget

9 Nov 2018
School News

On Friday 9 November the whole School gathered for a special moment of reflection and to remember and respect all those who have given their lives to protect our freedom.  This centenary, Remembrance has provided an opportunity for us as a School to reflect on the sacrifice made by every man and woman to protect us and our right to freedom.
 
During the service the Headmaster read out the names of the Aylesburians who died in the two great wars and in recent conflicts and this was followed by trumpeters of AGS playing the last post.  Following two minutes silence the trumpeters sounded the wake up call ‘reveille’.

They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
