Remembrance at Risedale


Pupils from Risedale School attended a Service of Remembrance at Ripon Cathedral on the 4th November, followed by our own whole school assembly on the 11th November.

On Friday 4th November service pupils from Risedale School were invited to attend a Service of Remembrance at Ripon Cathedral. During the service, a film was played where pupils from Risedale spoke about what Remembrance means to them as military kids, their experiences of military life, and why it is so important that we remember.

The film was made by Chris Kaye of BFBS Catterick working in collaboration with Risedale School pupils and staff, NYCC Youth Voice Creative Engagement Officer Cheryl Pocknell, and Service Children's Champion Jess Greenhalgh.

On Friday 11th November Risedale pupils and staff gathered for a whole school assembly marking Armistice Day.

Headteacher, Mr Colin D Scott, spoke about how we honour the memory of the fallen by wearing a poppy and taking time to reflect and remember their sacrifice.


The assembly ended with a one-minute silence made even more poignant by Drum Major Nigel Jane of the British Army Band Catterick playing the bugle and performing ‘The Last Post’.
