2014 marked the one-hundred-year anniversary of the start of World War I. Various commemorations took place in school last November, as we held several ceremonies in honour of the fallen.
Over the course of the four-year war, eighty-one of our former students died. For over half a century, the school has maintained a memorial at the back of the Hall, commemorating these brave individuals. Today we launch a new project to further honour those who gave their life in service to their country.
From now until 2018, we will mark the one-hundred year anniversary of each individual on a centralised page, which will be held here. On that page, you can browse a complete list of names, and, on their anniversary, click a soldier’s name to reveal more about them. We are also planning various other commemorations in school, which will be revealed in due course.
As a school, we are immensely keen to hold on to our traditions and history, and this project is just a small part of that.
If you are a relative of one of the individuals named, we would love to hear from you! Please contact the school via email, for the attention of the Communications Officer.
