On the 11th hour, on the 11th day of the 11th month, the students, staff and Brethren of Hull Trinity House Academy joined to remember those who lost their lives fighting for their country.
Today’s two-minute silence was an especially poignant one, as it marked 100 years since King George ordered the first silence, one year after World War One ended. He made the request so "the thoughts of everyone may be concentrated on reverent remembrance of the glorious dead".
The Brethren of Hull Trinity house and our school captain Alex, laid wreaths of poppies to commemorate the service members killed in conflict.
Year 10 Engineering students also showed their respect by making aluminium poppies, which were displayed during the service. These poppies have been sold to raise funds for the Poppy Appeal.
By buying a red poppy each year you are supporting a new generation of veterans and Armed Forces personnel. Donations are also used in the Legion Branches across the country who are responsible for helping those veterans and service men and women in need. Thank you to everyone for their kind donations.
