As we stand here in peace and safety, we pay our respects to all of the fallen, all of the wounded and all who served in conflicts over the last 100 years.

On Monday, our Headmaster, Mr Mark Sturgeon, addressed our entire School in the playground. AGS Remembers..

"Each year we remember …… and it is only right, as a school with traditional values, that we take time to do so.
At the 11th hour on the 11th of November 1918 an armistice was signed between Germany and the Allies, ending World War One.
Remembrance provides an opportunity for us a School to reflect on the sacrifice made by every man and woman to protect us and our right to freedom. 100 years ago, in 1919, one year on from the end of the war, the first two minute silent was observed on Armistice Day, 11 November 1919 and so what we do today is a tradition which is now therefore a century old.
As we stand here in peace and safety today, we pay our respects to all of the fallen, all of the wounded and all who served in conflicts over the last 100 years. Today, we remember those who volunteered, sacrificed, served, fought, and died, for our freedom. We thank those who made the ultimate sacrifice and who gave their lives so that those who have come after them, like us, could have this freedom
We are going to read the names of the Aylesburians who died in the two great wars and in recent conflicts. Students and staff of our School throughout the years.
We will then lay a wreath to mark our respects to them and all those who have served.
At this point the last post will be played by trumpeters of AGS followed by a two minutes silence. At the end of this two minutes the trumpeters will sound the wake up call ‘reveille’"
