On Friday 9th November, Marriotts school commemorated the centenary of the end of the First World War by bringing staff and students together in special assemblies held throughout the morning.

The assemblies reflected on the experiences of soldiers from not only the Great War but across all of the conflicts throughout the 20th Century and the on-going commitment of British Servicemen and women to whom the school acknowledges a debt of thanks.

Led by Mr Kerr (Assistant Headteacher) the assemblies blended together an array of poetry, music, film footage and veterans accounts of the war. Students left the assemblies with a clear sense of the importance of the Remembrance Day and its continuing role beyond 2018.

The school looks forward to supporting the commemorations taking place in the Old Town on Sunday. Special thanks go to the Head Boy and Head Girl, Connor and Rebecca for their readings and to the talented Josh for his accompaniment on piano.

Marriotts School will be represented at the Remembrance Day Parade by Mr Hutchings and our Head Boy and Head Girl, who will be ‘lowering the flag’ as part of the Remembrance Day Service on the Bowling Green, Stevenage Old Town.
