We today honour those who lost their lives as a result of war. At 11:00 am on the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918 a peace agreement was signed between the countries involved, ending four years of war. After World War 1, poppies became a common sight as they flourished in the churned up fields of battle and have become a symbol to honour those who fell during the War.
The English International College is an International community and on this day we feel it is a time not only to remember those of the Commonwealth who have fallen during the war, but every person who lost their life or has been directly affected by any war around the world. This includes all European countries, and indeed every country that has been at war.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
Lest we forget
