  • Remembrance Day

    Remembrance Day

    Today, Combe Pafford School marked Remembrance Day by holding a virtual assembly looking at the impact of WW2 in our local area and also linking remembrance symbols and actions with those demonstrated during the recent lockdown period.

    Whilst it is usual to gather together to observe the silence at 11am on Remembrance Day, we had to do things slightly differently this year. A live feed was shared across all classrooms to show Crystal (Year 8) read a section of the Poem ‘The Fallen’ by Robert Laurence Binyon and to hear Mr Spooner play ‘The Last Post’.

    Later in the day, class 8S visited the Torquay War Memorial and laid a wreath on behalf of all at Combe Pafford School.
