On Sunday, many of our children will have taken part in remembrance parades or seen them on the television. On Wednesday, the 11th day of the 11th month, as a school we will spend some quiet time thinking about those who have sacrificed their lives and demonstrated courage in allowing us to live in the free country that we do today.
For two of our children, one of their relatives has become somewhat of a celebrity within the locality where they live. Grandad Stan (far right in picture), great granddad to Owen and Jessica is one of 3 surviving brothers who all fought in World War Two. The local newspaper has produced an article and a you tube clip ( link attached) in helping us understand just what it was like and how their lives have been shaped since.
