Remembrance Day takes place on 11 November every year in Commonwealth Countries, marking the official ending of the WWI on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918, Armistice Day. A two minute silence is held on this day every year so that we do not forget the millions killed, injured and affected by war and people wear remembrance poppies. The Discovery and War Memorial Libraries have special Remembrance displays of war time books for you to borrow.
The Ravensbourne School War Memorial, initially dedicated to students and staff who gave their lives in the Great War, is situated in the KS4/5 Library; known as the War Memorial Library. It was added to again after World War II. The war memorial is important to the life of the school and we mention it often.
As the War Memorial Library is for the use of KS4 and 5 students and staff only and we are aware that the KS3 students do not get to see the memorial, a timetable of visits has been arranged for the Year 7 students to visit during Form Time this term.
