Shiel Remembrance Assembly

Our final Remembrance Assembly took place today. Students in Shiel House heard House Captains Charlotte-May Gourdie and Ronan Hennessy talk about the Poppy Scotland Appeal ahead of Armistice Day tomorrow.  They also introduced Catherine De Venny (4K1), Ellie Ross (4T1) and Georgina Proctor (4T1) who talked movingly about their recent History trip to the Word War 1 Battlefields and grave sites in Belgium.

The girls were presented with WW1 Centenary Coins by Mr Ian Burnett, Secretary of the Royal British Legion  Inverness Branch in recognition of their presentations at each House Assembly this week. Other guests today also included Mrs Shirley Carmody from the Royal British Legion and Sergeant Major Donald Campbell from the Army. Mitchell Leslie (3L) once again piped out all the young people at the end of assembly when they also had the opportunity to purchase a poppy.

We hold a two minutes silence at 11am tomorrow and our Senior Prefects will also be attending a service at Council Headquarters where they will read out the Binyons Words and Kohima Epitaph on behalf of the Royal British Legion and as guests of the Provost of Inverness.
