On Monday 11 November, the whole school gathered in the hub for the annual St Bart’s Remembrance Service. In addition to all students and staff, the service was attended by ex-servicemen, governors and members of the Parents’ Association and Old Newburians’ Association.
The School Officers laid wreathes in the Memorial Garden and were joined by members of the CCF by the flagpole to lower the flag to half-mast.
This was followed by the traditional reading of the Roll of Honour, commemorating all of the past St. Bart’s students who have died in war.
Bugle calls were heard and then the School reflected during the two minute silence.
The service is a unique occasion where the whole school comes together to show gratitude for the bravery of all the past students and their comrades.
