Tynecastle Remembers

To recall the end of hostilities of World War I in 1918 at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, a two minute silence will be held in school on Friday 11th November. Two of our students will also lay a wreath at the Remembrance Service at Haymarket on Sunday 13th November.

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.

Laurence Binyon (1869-1943) published in the Times Newspaper on 21 September 1914
