ON SUNDAY 13TH NOVEMBER, THE CHRIST COLLEGE COMMUNITY GATHERED TOGETHER TO PAY THEIR RESPECTS TO THOSE WHO HAD PAID THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE DEFENDING THEIR COUNTRY.
Members of the Christ College Community came together on Sunday 13th November to pay their respects to those Old Breconians who had lost their lives during the great wars.
In a moving and sombre service, the names of all those who made the ulitmate sacrifice for King and Country were read out by members of the school’s Cadet Force, the Head and a representative of the Old Breconian Association.
The preacher on the day was our own sanatorium sister, Mrs Cathy Morrell. Herself, an officer in the school’s Cadet Force, mother of a serving army officer and Old Breconian, sister and daughter of army officers, Sister Morrell delivered a moving sermon on why we should never forget.
At 11am, a minute’s silence was observed and the last post was played by Upper Sixth pupil, Megan.
After the service, Year 9 pupils from the Combined Cadet Force paraded outside the chapel at the school’s war memorial where wreaths were placed and the national anthem sung. With our strong tradition of educating forces children, a good number of our parents who have been or still are serving in HM Forces, were able to attend the service.
Whilst our younger cadets played their part at Christ College, our Year 10 cadets plus more senior cadets paraded at the Town’s memorial as part of Brecon’s service of remembrance. After standing on parade outside St Mary’s Church, the cadets, lead by Contingent Commander, Major Owen and SSI, WO1 Bevan, marched through town up to the Cathedral, where they attended the town’s Remembrance Service. The cadets were praised by serving officers on their immaculate appearance and behaviour during the parade and service.
