Remembrance Service - 16/11/2019

< Back to the news

11th November 2019

On Monday 11th November we remembered the fallen with a Remembrance Assembly. Members of Year 6 presented some poems which they had written.We paused for the 1 minute silence and listened to the last post.

We finished the Service with a poem written by Jack, 'Under a White Cross'  

If we shall not come through,

If we fall over and you finish the race for us,

Then it is all I can ask.

If you have made anything of impact,

To help your country to have a future,

Then my suffering will be nothing but worth it.

Although many have been mentally destroyed,

Or been thrown into a box of torture and not reached the exit,

They have all made each and every person in their country,

Exceptionally proud.

So I think that,

It is much more than I deserved,

To rest peacefully,

Under a white cross.


We are pleased to announce that Five Ways Primary raised £451.36 for The Royal British Legion in the recent poppy appeal that took place earlier this month. Thank you for your kind donations to such a worthy charity.
