Remembrance Service – City Chambers 9th November 2012
The Primary Seven Children of St Monica’s Milton were delighted to accept an invitation from Glasgow Education Department to participate in such an honourable occasion. As Responsible Citizens of Glasgow their contribution of poetry and song reminded everyone in the Banqueting Hall, that no one must ever forget the sacrifices that have been made by our Armed Forces, to secure peace and freedom for our country.
‘Clydebank Blitz’ was recited with commendable expression, emotion and accuracy. The children sang a new song, appealing to a captive audience, ‘Will we just remember once a year?’ This question stirred the mind of all present. To finish the Primary Seven recited ‘Lest We Ever Forget’. There was an eerie silence in the magnificent hall. Tears welled in many eyes as the children were applauded for their efforts.
Holly McMenemy said, “I think my class successfully presented the message that ‘We Must Never Forget’ the sacrifices made by our armed forces.” Chloe Brown expressed that she “felt a great responsibility was on her shoulders to get the remembrance message over to the other schools.”
The Remembrance event was led by Liz Bovill with Michael McEnenemey at the keyboard.
