Today on the 11th November, the children from Year 6 and Year 4 represented the school in the Henley-in-Arden local town service, in collaboration with the British Legion, to commemorate the fallen and wounded from the ‘Two Great Wars’ and from wars since and on-going today.
Jasmine Possee and Charlie Darby, as Head girl and Head boy, placed a wreath on the war memorial in St John’s church.
Samuel Cossey, Charlie Richards and Keira Taylor read their own poems aloud and Jack Kelly-Owen and Emily Woore read the prayer of Saint Francis, also known as the ‘Peace Prayer’.
Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
Where there is sadness, joy.
O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
To be consoled as to console,
To be understood as to understand,
To be loved as to love;
For it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
It is in dying to self that we are born to eternal life.
