Lest we Forget Entire School

This Remembrance Sunday, 13th November 2016, St Lawrence College staff, parents and pupils were invited to attend the memorial service held at the Commonwealth Cemetery in Palaio Faliro, Athens.

A very moving service was held in which a number of distinguished diplomats including the British Ambassador, Mr John Kittmer and the US Ambassador Mr Geoffrey Pyatt, as well as war veterans and other senior military officials, laid wreaths in commemoration of those who died in war.

There was a reading of Kenny Martin's poem 'I went to see the soldiers' by our Head Pupil and a beautiful rendition of Shawn Hook's moving song, 'Soldier' by the Junior School choir, under the tuition of our music teacher and choir leader, Ms Clare Bakewell. It was a special occasion to be a part of, and warmly received by all guests. Well done to the childen for their sincere participation.
