Ipswich School remembers

At 11am on Friday 11 November, the country fell silent as we commemorated those who died defending our country in war.

At Ipswich School, the hour was marked by two minutes’ silence as four pupil trumpeters played The Last Post on the Library roof, and many pupils and teachers stood outside to pay tribute.

This was followed on Sunday 13 November with the annual Remembrance Evensong which took place in the School Chapel and which was attended by members of the school community including the Combined Cadet Force and Old Ipswichians. With music from the Chapel Choir, opening with ‘For the Fallen’, composed by Douglas Guest, an anthem and a performance of Psalm 23, along with several hymns, the music definitely suited this sombre and reflective occasion.

John Graham, Vice President of the OI Club, read the first lesson, and Sally Webber, OI Chair, read the second lesson. Bob Clayton laid the Wreath of Remembrance on behalf of the Old Ipswichians.  Two of the pupil trumpeters played The Last Post, followed by a minute’s silence. Members of the CCF also took part in the service.  The Chaplain, Rev Crompton-Battersby, gave a thought-provoking sermon, on the poppy and its meaning. After a blessing the service concluded and there was a retiring collection in support of Macmillan Cancer Support.
