Love, Care, Share Our Religious Assemblies

​We were thrilled to be joined by fourteen members of the Royal British Legion from Leytonstone, Chingford and Romford for our Remembrance Day Assemblies. Three standard bearers marched in to open the assemblies which were led by some children from Year 2 and Year 6. The highlight was meeting 96-year old Mr Bill Allen, a World War 2 veteran of the Royal Berkshire Infantry Regiment who was Field Marshal Montgomery's personal bodyguard. Some of the members spoke about the Royal British Legion and their Chaplain ended the assemblies with a prayer. Mr Ray Gross, Secretary of the Leytonstone Royal British Legion, wrote: "What a wonderful afternoon we had at the school on Friday. It was a pleasure for us all to attend. You should be very proud of all the pupils, they are so delightful to be with."


Bill Allen also wrote to thank us: "May I thank you most sincerely for your invitation - it was a day I shall remember for the rest of my life. The attention they gave us was wonderful to see and my congratulations go to those students who recited the poems and prayers which are recalled every Remembrance Day."

Our Remembrance Day assemblies were led by members of the Leytonstone branch of the Royal British Legion assisted by some of the After-School Local History club who showed us a PowerPoint presentation about Charles Coward, a local WW2 hero. Some of the children dressed in Beaver, Cub and Brownie uniforms and marched with the two British Legion standard bearers. We were honoured by the British Legion when they presented a certificate to Mrs Hanley and Mrs Johnstone that makes us all Affiliated Members of their branch.


Remembrance Day

Our assemblies for Remembrance Day were led by some of the children involved in the Poppy Project and by members of the Royal British Legion. We remembered the 22 men from Edmonton who died at the Battle of Passchendael 100 years ago and who are commemorated at Tyne Cot cemetery in Belgium.
