Remembrance Day 2016

Among the many wonderful activities organised for Poppy Day, one group of Year 10 pupils went with Mrs. Black to St. Aubyn’s Church in Devonport.  We attended a special commemorative service in remembrance of the fallen in wars as well as hope for the future.  This service was followed by James laying a wreath, on behalf of Brook Green, at the memorial stone, dedicated to the soldiers from the Devonshire regiment who fell on the first day of the Battle of the Somme.  The reverend Dr. Gemma Burnett, the vicar of St. Aubyn’s, read out the names of hundreds of people from the Devonport area who gave their lives in wars, including World War I.
