Two children from Breakspear Infant and Nursery School made a most memorable contribution to the Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance, held at the Royal Albert Hall in November.  This enormously important occasion takes place each year, in the presence of the Queen, other members of the Royal family and the Prime Minister.  It is attended by thousands and watched by millions around the world. 

Phoebe Gardner and Henry Lowenthal, both aged six and from Year 2 at Breakspear, were selected for this great honour.  Henry presented a posy of poppies while Phoebe made the statement shown above, on behalf of children everywhere.  The poppies were then placed solemnly on the Book of Remembrance.  Phoebe’s and Henry’s Head Teacher, Mrs Lynne Sumner, said, “They understood the significance of the occasion and carried out their part so well.  We have received so much positive reaction to their involvement and the school is very proud of them.”

ICN asked Phoebe how she felt speaking to so many people. “We had aching legs because we were waiting so long and it was a baby bit scary at first”, she replied, “but when I realised it wasn’t much to do, I just got going.” 

A third child from Breakspear, Timmy Jordan, was also present at the ceremony, singing in the choir.  The children’s parents were present as was Dr Rutter, Head Teacher of Breakspear Junior School.  For all who saw it, it was certainly an occasion to remember!
