Remembrance Day Assembly
On Friday 11 November, the whole school gathered for our annual Remembrance Day Assembly, in which prayers, poems and music were offered to reflect on the sacrifices made by those who fought for our freedom and to remember recently departed members of the school community.
The assembly was set in the context of the Catholic Year of Mercy, with reflection on the Welsh Assembly Centenary Lecture attended by our sixth formers, which described the remarkable story of the Christmas truce of 1914.
Our commemorations were elevated by Dr Howells’ moving rendition of The Last Post, followed by the Concert Orchestra’s inspiring performances of J.S. Bach’s Fantasia in C Minor (arranged by Elgar) and Elgar’s ‘Nimrod’ from the Enigma Variations. The Cathedral Choir offered Rutter’s The Lord Bless You and Keep You as a fitting end to a very moving assembly.
