Remembrance Day at Hull Trinity House Academy
Today marked our first Remembrance Parade at our new location, joined by Hull Trinity House Brethren and Old Boys in paying our respects, alongside City of Hull Brass Band accompanying to play a solo trumpet.
We remembered those that gave their lives in sacrifice of King and Country, the former students that served in the Military and Merchant Navy during the Great Wars, and those that have served in the wars since, ever thankful for their heroic actions.
The proceedings of the parade began with all students lining up on the parade yard. The Brethren, Master Wardan, Old Boys and Principal Mr Flack joined the yard to a drum roll.
City of Hull Brass Band performed “Last Post”. After which, Mr Flack read out “For the Fallen”. At 11 o’clock, we observed two minutes of silence. This was concluded with the Naval Reveille as the Brethren and Officers saluted.
Wreaths were then laid at the base of our school bell by the Brethren Master Warden, Old Boys and the School’s Captain. The additional parties than exited from the yard, which all throughout the procession, the whole school of students had been stood at attention, and were absolutely fantastic in representing their school, which was also commented upon by the Master Warden, “One of the best services he’d ever attended at the school”.
A mention of thanks to the Hull Trinity House Brethren and Old Boys for attending the service and keeping our traditions alive amongst the students; to City of Hull Brass Band’s flawless renditions; Humberside Police for their presence and to the students for their good behaviour and respect.
