We Will Remember Them

09th Nov 2018

Today we held assemblies to reflect and give thanks to those who made the ultimate sacrifice on our behalf, to remember and be respectful, and to make sure that we do everything we can to make the world a more peaceful place, and a better place for current and future generations.

At the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918, exactly one hundred years ago this Sunday, the guns of the First World War fell silent.

Remembrance is always important, of course, but it is especially significant this year to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War.

While it may be more difficult to think of excellence at this time, the other Radnor House core values are very much to the fore. No one can truly appreciate the courage of those who fight and are prepared to die for their country, nor the perseverance required to continue the fight for so long.

Above all, however, remembrance is about respect. Today we gathered to reflect on sacrifice and the highest bravery; we were silent to think about what others have been through to help us live in a better world; we showed our sincere respect for what has gone before.
