They shall grow not old as we that are left grow old

QEGS held two very thought provoking and humbling Acts of Remembrance on Friday with Years 7-10 in the Main Hall and Years 11-13 in Big School.

At 11:00 a bell sounded and all pupils and students were asked to stand. The Head (Mr Park for Years 11-13) then read the well-known words, “They shall grow not old as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them”.

This was immediately followed by a two-minute silence which was beautifully observed.

After the end of the service all pupils and students in complete silence and wearing their poppies, respectfully filed past the War Memorials in Big School.
