On Thursday 11th November 2020 The Coleshill School held its annual Remembrance Service to commemorate former students of The Coleshill School who lost their lives in active service.
This year was very different as the school was unable to hold the usual ceremony in the Hall in front of all the students. The service was presented to the students virtually during lesson time. The last post sounded before the two-minute silence was observed. Then the ‘Act of Remembrance’ was read out by Mr Smith-Childs and Sixth Form Students in proud and affectionate memory of all those old boys of The Coleshill School who gave their lives for their country and its cause in the two world wars, including James Munday who died in Afghanistan in 2008.
Mr Smith-Childs, Headteacher said “It is the first time in 10 years of being Headteacher at The Coleshill School that the Remembrance Service was held in an empty hall due to Covid-19. The Remembrance Service is such an important event for the school and it is so important to remember those who fought and died in the armed services for our freedom.”
