Remembrance - Friday 10th November 2023

At 11am ICC students and staff fell silent for two minutes to commemorate Remembrance Day. 

Students and staff gathered around the Atrium for the remembrance ceremony that began with Army Cadets, Marine Cadets, Air Cadets and Police Cadets from ICC marching and saluting to the memorial in the centre of the Atrium.

Sixth Form Head students laid a commemorative wreath before staff and students observed a two minute silence at 11:00am to the sound of the 'last call' to commemorate those who fought and died for Britain not just those that died in the First World War, but in World War Two and later conflicts.

The first two-minute silence in Britain was held on November 11, 1919 at the request of King George V, the Queen's grandfather.

The Exhortation was recited by a Sixth Form student.  

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.

It was an extremely emotional ceremony with the whole school gathered together.
