St Dunstan’s College’s annual Service of Remembrance took place on Monday 11 November and was led by Canon Boswell.
|12 Nov 2019|
This year, St Dunstan’s unveiled a large poppy installation featuring more than 650 poppies of varying sizes. The display is made up of two rivers of poppies hanging down the side of the front building and a giant three metre by three metre poppy.
The front crescent also included a large cross, where the wreaths were laid by Senior and junior pupils, and more than 150 smaller crosses representing St Dunstan’s loss in the Second World War and following conflicts.
Following the Service of Remembrance, Canon Boswell read out the following prayer:
Ever living God
We remember those whom you have gathered
From the storm of war into the peace of your presence;
May that same peace
Clam our fears,
Bring justice to all peoples
And establish harmony among the nations,
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
When you go home, tell them of us and say
For your tomorrow, we gave our today.
