Transcript of Remembrance Day Assembly

Remembrance Day -
11th Hour of the 11th Day of the 11th Month. REMEMBRANCE DAY SERVICES ARE ANOTHER WAY THAT WE PAY TRIBUTE TO THOSE WHO FOUGHT FOR US. War memorials are a common sight and are one way that we honour those men and women who made the supreme sacrifice so that we might live in peace. This picture shows people celebrating the end of the First World War. Armistice was declared at 11:00 a.m on November 11, 1918.


The eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month is when we remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice so that we could live in peace.

Altogether around 160 million people died in the wars of the 20th Century.

Around 600 000 people have died in wars in the first twelve years of the 21st Century. Soldiers also dug and lived in foxholes to try and stay safe. and now we lie in Flanders Fields. and were loved ... scarce heard amid the guns below ... that mark our place ... In Flanders Fields... l

d short days ago we lived ... and in the sky the larks, still singing bravely, fly... row on row ... between the crosses,                                                          the
poppies
grow.... ONE MINUTE OF SILENCE DURING THE ONE MINUTE OF SILENCE YOU ARE ASKED TO STAND AND BOW YOUR HEAD.

REMEMBER THAT IT IS ONLY BECAUSE OF THE SACRIFICE OF SO MANY THAT WE ARE ABLE TO LIVE IN FREEDOM AND PEACE TODAY. we are the dead ... On Remembrance Day we wear poppies to help us remember the horrors of war and the many brave people who lost their lives as a result. In Flanders Fields... and in the sky the larks, still singing bravely, fly.. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid.

John 14:27 Let us pray:

O God of truth and justice,
we hold before you those whose memory we cherish,
and those whose names we will never know.
Help us to lift our eyes above the torment of this broken world
and grant us grace to pray for those who wish us harm.
As we honour the past, may we put our faith in your future:
for you are the source of life and hope, now and forever.

Amen. At this time we remember the dead of two world wars and the other conflicts of the 20th and 21st Centuries Ode to remembrance They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

(repeat together 'We will remember them')
