CHS Remembers Together Whilst Apart

Each year CHS remembers those who have fallen and suffered resulting from the impact of war, and honours those who have, and continue, to dedicate their lives to service.

Remembrance Day would usually see the whole School community congregate outside the Main Building for a service of commemoration. In an effort to maintain this sense of communal reflection, while abiding by current restrictions, we invited all members of the staff and student body, along with CHS families and Old Waconians, to take part in our virtual Service of Remembrance.

Our virtual service followed the story of the Spanish Flu and included poignant readings from students, staff and Old Waconians. The Last Post was played beautifully by Sixth Form music student, Alice, followed by the 2-minute silence, allowing us all to take time to remember and reflect.

Following the service the Head, Mr Smith, our Head Boy, James, and teacher and Old Waconian, Mrs Barfoot, laid the wreaths at the Old Waconians’ sundial memorial.

You can watch the Service of Remembrance in full and read stories of the School community over on the School Blog.

You can also hear the full service again in a special edition of CHS’s regular The Ed. Podcast. Join Year 11 host Thomas who guides you through and also introduces extra features and special guests.
