Act of Remembrance

We will remember them - Many Old Lyonians fought and died in the World Wars of last century. On 11th November, the School joined with OLs to remember them.

On Thursday 11th November 2021, the whole School gathered in the Red House Garden with OLs for an Act of Remembrance to remember those who died fighting in wars.

This included an address from the Head, a moving extract read from Mr Hargreave's letter to the Lyonian by Vinay Kapoor, Head Boy. The Pride of Lyon's sang 'be still my soul' by Sibelius. Following this, the reading out of the names of the OLs who died in the Great War, and the laying of wreaths.

It was lovely to be able to have the Act of Remembrance in person after such a long time.
