Although the last few weeks since the passing of King Bhumipol Adulyadej have been extremely sad, and a time for reflection, the secondary school gathered together at 11 am on the 11th November, as is tradition at the Regent’s School and around the world, to remember all those soldiers and civilians who have lost their lives in times of war. The service was observed by all pupils and staff in a very respectful manner and while the traditions of the original Remembrance Day, honouring service men and women who died in the First World War, was followed, secondary pupils also considered other remembrance traditions in other countries. Pupils laid a Japanese origami crane at the ‘peace’ tree in the school grounds under a placard with the simple words ‘We Remember’ to mark their respects to the fallen. We hope this Remembrance service with an international twist is a tradition that will continue for many years at the Regent’s School
