Remembrance Day

Holyhead remembers

On the 11th of November, we had the honour of hosting a Remembrance Day event for the brave soldiers who fought for our liberty today, as well as the ones who sacrificed trying to gain liberty for us all. 

We were joined by WO Donald Campbell as well as Soho Road Bid Directors. It was and will be an unforgettable experience for us students as well as staff who were involved in the process. 

Tanish – Head Boy

“I was very honoured to be a part of the Holyhead Remembrance Day ceremony and to meet the Warrant Officer Donald Campbell. I think it is important for us to remember this day, for all the past and present people who fight for our country. Especially the efforts from those from underrepresented  backgrounds during the war. This is crucial for us at Holyhead to reflect on considering how diverse our community is and how we are all connected to the past. Overall, it was a great experience for me as we are celebrating and remembering those who sacrificed their lives for our countries in order to help shape the community we are a part of today – it’s essential we never forget.”

Jagoda – Junior Leadership Team

“I was honoured to lead this event as my first act as head girl. It was amazing to hear the stories from our special guest WO Donald Campbell.  I loved taking part in this event “

Taaranjot – Head Girl

“I will cherish this mesmerising experience”

Rahul – Year 11

“Lots of cultures and religions came together to remember those who have passed away while fighting for their country”

Mehzabin – Year 9

“It was indeed a pleasure for me to be invited to participate in the Remembrance Service at Holyhead School.  It is a wonderful initiative that you have initiated and should be encouraged by other schools to remind and educate our youngsters of the past so that they will hopefully be a better future through learning. Many thanks to staff and pupils for your hard work and endeavour in putting on successful event. I truly believe that each year will be bigger and better as we all make it our duty to remember those who serve.

Lest We Forget.
