Remembrance Day at FHSCorinne
Former and current students at Fairfield High School (FHS) were proud and privileged to come together at 11am on 11th November to mark Armistice Day. Members of the active Old Fairfieldian’s Society attended the Remembrance ceremony at the school in Allfoxton Road, to meet students and, in some cases, surprise them when discussing the years that they themselves embarked on their secondary school education at FHS. They were also treated to a special performance by musician Pete Judge, who played the Last Post.
Nick Lewis, Principal of FHS led the short, but moving ceremony which included introductory words and a poem about Remembrance Day, before the start of the two minute silence.
Nick Lewis comments: “It was an absolute pleasure, as always, to welcome the Old Fairfieldians back to Fairfield and to see their interaction with our students. This year we were also honoured to welcome a professional musician, Pete Judge. This ceremony is a poignant one for us, as a number of our former students sadly lost their lives in the First and Second World Wars. By taking time to reflect and remember all those who have fought for us goes some way towards keeping their memory alive.”
