Rememberance Day 2021
Re: 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.
