At 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month the pupils and staff at Colsterworth School fell silent to remember all those who have given their lives in war and conflict. We held an Act of Remembrance in the church and gave thanks to all the men and women who gave their lives so that we can live the lives we have today.
'They will grow not old as we who are left grow old.
Age will not weary them nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.'
Mrs Jordan and many of our pupils also took part in the Colsterworth Festival of Remembrance on Sunday 10th November laying a wreath on the memorial in the village.
Children also created poppies which have been displayed in the church throughout the festival.
