Packing out one half of the double Sports Hall, the Regents' community came together on a day that is commemorated around the world as Remembrance Day. They gathered on 'the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month'. Principal Iain Blaikie opened the Assembly by emphasising the importance of remembering those who sacrificed their lives. Head of Primary, Grant Gillies and Head of IB, Rachel Batty both reflected on what Remembrance Day meant for them personally.
Meanwhile, Year 8 drama students gave a poignant performance of a play entitled Brothers in Arms. The play told the tragic story of the town of Accrington which lost most of its menfolk on the first day of the Battle of the Somme. The play also reflected the similar impact on the German side: the point of the drama being to highlight the pointlessness and waste of conflict. The same students also created colourful posters and, along with a collection of photographs taken during rehearsals, these were displayed on panels outside the Sports Hall.
Music performances were given by soloists from both the Primary and Secondary Schools, and a combined choir sang The Hanging Tree. The Last Post was played by Josh Dionisio and was followed by two minutes silence.
At the conclusion of the Assembly, students and staff filed out of the Sports Hall to lay poppies and wreaths under the clock tower.
