Today every student and every member of staff paid their respects to those who died in past and present conflicts. Students researched and dedicated their cross or star to a member of their family or a local soldier who died in World War one or more recent wars.
Each student and staff member placed a symbol in the ground during the morning. At 11 o clock the whole school gathered around our memorial lawn and the last post was played on a military bugle by Mr Beaumont. There followed a 2 mi-nute silence by the whole school which ended with the Bugle call. Two students laid a wreath by the silhouettes of unknown soldiers in remembrance of those who fell. Davenant lost both staff and students in the Great War 1914 to 1918
