Pupils from Glyn School in Ewell took part in events to honour the military dead as part of Remembrance Day last week.
Students from Years 8 and 10 were involved in a commemorative event at the school’s own war memorial to remember 32 former Glyn pupils who died in World War Two, as well as Major Paul Harding, who died in the Iraq War nine years ago.
The school brass band performed and the Last Post was played as the names of the dead were read out and wreaths were laid, with the school’s own Combined Cadet Force supplying a guard of honour. Two minutes of silence were also observed throughout the school
Glyn, a founder member of the GLF Schools multi-academy trust, was also represented at the ceremony in Epsom town centre, where teachers and members of the Glyn cadets joined Councillor George Crawford in honouring the town’s dead. Year 11 pupil Liam Summers was given the honour of reading a prayer at the service.
“Students should be immensely proud of their conduct today during both the school’s and Epsom’s Remembrance Services,” said Glyn’s head teacher Phillip Wheatley. “They displayed dignity and respect, which is testament to their understanding of the great sacrifice that our former Glyn students gave for their country.”
