The War Memorial at TRS

At the Remembrance Service at the Bromley Methodist Church on Sunday 8th November, Brownies, Scouts and Guides, some of whom attend TRS, contributed to the service.  The Scouts contribution included the mention of Clifford George Grail and the TRS War Memorial.

The War Memorial Library at TRS is particularly dedicated to Clifford George Grail, Captain 7th North Staffordshire Regiment, who was killed in action at Gallipoli on 23rd July 1915 aged 24.  He was House Master at the school, originally Bromley County Grammar, from 1911 and was founder of the school corps or cadet group and would have inspired lots of boys to sign up and join the war.

On 11th November at 11.00 am, pupils and staff at TRS observed a minute silence to remember all those who fought and died in the conflicts around the world.  

Remembrance Assemblies also took place this week for KS3, KS4 and KS5, with an entrance song sung by Year 9s.
