Remembrance Service

11th November 2016
Albourne CE School community shared a  silence at the 11th hour of the 11th day on the 11th month in remembrance of all those who had fought in wars across the years.  Children in Year 5 and 6 have a very good understanding of just how devastating war can be as they have been finding out about the experiences of evacuees, and have also heard Fergus Anckorn recount his experience as a prisoner of war in Burma.  As part of the service, children read some outstanding poetry relating to war and evacuation.
