Today, students in all year groups attended a remembrance liturgy to reflect on the sacrifices of service men and women, and to understand the importance of the work of the Royal British Legion. As part of the act of remembrance, students observed a two minute silence, marked by a moving performance of the Last Post by Nathaniel, Year 12, and Mrs Allsobrook, Learning Support.

This year De Lisle will be represented at the Loughborough Remembrance Sunday service and parade by two students who will be placing a wreath on behalf of the school. This wreath formed part of our liturgy display today at the front of the hall for all students to see. On Sunday it will be taken to the remembrance service and placed at the Carillon Tower in Queen’s Park.

De Lisle College prays for those who have lost their lives in conflict.

“Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.” (John 15:13)

Eternal rest grant unto them O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May their souls, and the souls of all the faithful departed, rest in peace. Amen
