Remembrance at Appplemore


On Friday, the whole Applemore community had the opportunity to reflect on the armed forces members who had made such a sacrifice in serving for their country.

To reflect on the physical, emotional, and mental pressures that come from serving and the impact this has on their families and the wider society. At Applemore, we honoured this sacrifice.

We began the day with a whole school assembly in recognition of Armistice Day, and so many of our community wore their poppies of remembrance.  Many of our students also wore their scout and cadet uniforms and we came together as a community to observe our minute’s silence at 11am.

Ryan (Year 10) solemnly played the Last Post at our gathering, and we were joined by Jannas Du Preez, a serving soldier, as we read poems of reflection. Finally, a wreath was laid at the front of the school in a very moving and meaningful morning at Applemore.
