We Will Remember Them
Virtual Remembrance Day Service Goes Ahead
Plans to mark one of the most important days within the school year continued to go ahead at Queen Mary’s School, following the current Government guidance regarding COVID-19.
Reverend Pauline Percy, Queen Mary’s School Chaplain lead the socially-distanced Service which included The Last Post played by Year 11 pupil, Rachel Mitchell.
The school, based at Baldersby Park, between Ripon and Thirsk, streamed its Remembrance Service live to all pupils and staff, ensuring that the occasion was marked by everyone within the school community.
Poppies were made by students, which will be displayed on a large cross outside the Grade II Listed School building, which once served as a Military Hospital during the First World War.
“Remembrance Day is a very special day in our calendar for the whole school community and especially for those who have family in the Army, Royal Navy and Royal Air Force,” says Carole Cameron, Head of Queen Mary’s. “As a school, we have a strong spiritual ethos. We were very keen for our Remembrance Service to go ahead as we believe it is really important, this year more than ever, that we remember the sacrifices that were made for our country.”
