This week we were joined by four clear silhouettes representing four airmen who flew from Scampton during the 1914 – 1918 war. Sitting in our classrooms, assemblies and offices there was the intended atmosphere of them being ‘There but not there’. We are honoured at Scampton School to be amongst families connected with the armed forces and grateful to all, past and present, who have contributed to the lives we live and enjoy.
There are many values on the signpost at the front of our school that reflect both reasons why people have given their lives in the past and why we should remember them. These values are the backbone of our school and provided a ‘golden thread’ for all the remembrance activities we took part in this week from selling poppies to playing the last post, from writing poetry to painting pebbles to lay round our flagpole. Respect, Thankfulness, Charity, Unity, Love, Compassion, Humility… they are all there.
We will remember them.
