Remembrance Events

Remembrance Event at the Crescent Primary School, Monday 11 November 2019. 

In 2020 the event will be on Wednesday 11 November .

On Monday 11 November 2019 OCA Committee Members and other OCA members once more attended a Remembrance Event at The Crescent Primary School - the building which formerly housed the Boys' School. After a short ceremony, the children maintained an exemplary two minutes' silence.  Staff then escorted the visiting OCs on a tour of the former Boys' School, following which our party were treated to tea and cakes by Rebecca Dolan, the new Head of the School.We were delighted to be able in this way to consolidate our relationship with The Crescent School and to help to keep alive in the minds of the next generation the value and importance of Remembrance.


Do join us on Wednesday 11 November 2020 at The Crescent Primary School if you can.  Please try to arrive by 1030 and no later than 1045 for the 1100 ceremony, after which we hope once more to have a tour of the old Boys' School led by some of today's primary pupils. The school greatly value the presence of OCA members at these events, which help to reinforce in the children's minds the sense that history is something real and not just in books and films.
