Act of Remembrance

Just before 11am on Monday, the Elstree Community gathered outside the front of the school for the Act of Remembrance.  The Service opened with the Bagpipes played by Cameron followed by some words from the Headmaster.  A number of boys then laid a wreath cross on behalf of their house and the pre-prep, and Mr Brown placed a wreath on behalf of the staff as the Elstree flag was lowered.  Two trumpeters played the Last Post from the roof of the school. 

On the previous Sunday morning we welcomed Commander O’Driscoll, grandfather of one of the boys, to speak at our Remembrance Sunday service which was held in the front hall.  He spoke very movingly about his time as a  naval diving officer and offered some tips to the boys on how to overcome fear.
