Higham Lane School Salutes Our Country's Gallant Heroes!
Lessons at Higham Lane School were briefly halted on Remembrance Day to allow students and staff to extend their heartfelt respects to our country's fallen heroes.
At the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month, everyone gathered on the playground to salute the gallant service men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice over the years.
Four student drummers were joined by trumpet player, Michael Taylor, of Bulkington Silver Band, who sounded`The Last Post' as the School impeccably respected two minutes silence.
Full story and more photographs in the next edition of HLS Express, due out in December!
