Rememberance Day 2021
Remembrance Day Celebration at Kuwait National English School
Remembrance Day is observed on the 11th
November every year. It was a tradition first
started by King George V in 1919, and initially called Armistice Day. The
armistice took place on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh
month in 1918. Remembrance
Day is about showing our respect and gratitude to
honour the courage, valour and sacrifice of the heroes who have served and
continue to serve the world during times of war and conflict.
I take great pleasure in informing parents, students
and community members that Kuwait National English School will celebrate
Remembrance Day on November 11, 2021 at 11:00 am. This annual event is always
highlighted in many ways like a Remembrance assembly, observing 2 minutes of
silence on the 11th day of the 11th month, and by the
sale of poppies as well. This important day is remembered with gratitude and at
Kuwait National English School we take pride in honoring and remembering
everyone who has been a victim of war, and who was affected by the war.
Remembrance Day 2021 feels much different than usual. This
year, it is different because of the Pandemic
restrictions. Students are not allowed to gather in groups at school, but the spirit of Remembrance Day should never be
forgotten. On November 11, we will be wearing a poppy and observing
a moment of silence at 11:00 am to honour those who have served and show
thanks for their sacrifice.
We must always remember those who have made the ultimate
sacrifice and whom we will never forget. Let us never forget.
