Higham Lane School Salutes Our Gallant Heroes!

Due to this year’s Armistice Day falling on a Saturday, and a School Inset Day scheduled for the previous day, Higham Lane paid its deep respects to the fallen two days in advance.

At the 11th hour, of the 9th day, of the 11th month, the School was hushed for two minutes’ silence, held in honour of the service men and women who have laid down their lives for the country.

Corridors fell silent and a cloak of quietness replaced the usual hustle and bustle of a break-time playground as students and staff remembered the gallant soldiers, sailors and airmen who have paid the ultimate sacrifice over the years.
