Glyn Remembers

Remembrance Day - Friday 10 November 2017

Today marked a day of reflection in school as we held our annual Service of Remembrance to pay tribute to the 32 Glyn Old Boys who fell in World War II and to Major Paul Harding who died 10 years ago in the Iraq War. 

The service, which was attended by staff and students in Years 8, 10 and 12, was led by Mr Duffield, Acting Headteacher, and supported by Mr Ward, Associate Headteacher, Lewis Rogerson, Head Boy, and  Anya Losyk, Head Girl. Also in attendance for the service was Mr Paul Skipp, representing the Old Glynians, and relatives of Tom Page, one of Glyn Old Boys who fell in World War II.

Glyn students maintained a dignified silence in The Proctor Hall as the Glyn Brass Band played ‘Highland Farewell’ to begin the service. The names of each of the Glyn Old Boys who died in service were read out and wreaths were laid at the school’s War Memorial in the Quad as James Nicholas 9B and Charlie Prime 9D played The Last Post. Combined Cadet Force (CCF) students provided a guard of honour, led by CSM Miller.

Students should be immensely proud of their conduct today during the Remembrance Service. They displayed dignity and respect, which is testament to their understanding of the great   sacrifice that our former Glyn students gave for their country.
