Respects were paid in London’s second largest Remembrance parade.

The annual Remembrance parade and service in Harrow on Sunday (November 10) was met by many around Harrow.

Led by the Glen Trew Pipe Band, the parade began from St Ann’s Precinct at 10am with servicemen joining the parade and made its way to the Civic Centre.

At 10:30am, the parade arrived at the Harrow War Memorial, Station Road, outside the Civic Parade Ground where wreaths were laid during the Harrow Remembrance Service just before the two minutes silence at 11am.

In the week building up to the Sunday, schools across Harrow also held their own services.

St Gregory’s Catholic Science College, Kenton, laid over 550 commemorative crosses in the school’s prayer garden as part of their remembrance over the week.

As a cross-curriculum activity, every pupil in years 7, 8 and 9 made a small wooden cross and poppy in their Design and Technology Lesson which was then painted in their Art lessons.

In their Religion Education lessons, pupils wrote a prayer of remembrance and thanksgiving for a soldier whom they had researched or was a member of their family.

An assembly was held around the crosses at the school garden where pupils offered their prayers of thanks to those who gave their lives during the War.

Mr Prindiville, the headteacher of the school, said: “This wonderful initiative, spearheaded by our Religious Education Department, has helped to educate our pupils about the significance of the First World War and has brought the whole school community together in prayerful contemplation and thanksgiving.”

During the week leading up to Remembrance Day, lessons in History focused on the World War 1 trench warfare, Geography lessons looked at the impact of conflict on Population Pyramids and calculations were made in Maths about the ratios and percentages of people who died, alongside various other Remembrance themed lessons in Music, Science, French and English.
