Remembrance Events

Remembrance Event at the Crescent Primary School, Friday 09 November 2018. 

In 2019 the event will be on Monday 11November (NB: new date).

On Friday 09 November 2018 OCA Committee Members and others 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.  Three of the senior pupils then escorted the visiting OCs on a tour of the former Boys' School, following which our party were treated to tea and cakes by Bernice Warwick, Interim Co-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. A fuller account of this event was published in the 2019 OCA Magazine (available only to members paying their annual subscription).

 

Do join us on Monday 11 November 2019 (please note change of date) 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.
