A very big thank you to the children who represented the school for us in this year's Remembrance Parade. Tom, Katie, Abigail, Evie, Ffion, Cora, Alex, Bryan, Ellie, Ruby, Cordilia, Grace,Toby and Morgan took part in this historic event for us and perhaps there will not be a similar occasion until 2039/2045 with the beginning and end of the Second World War.
The children each wore a sash bearing the name of one soldier from Pencoed who went out to fight in the Great War and who never came back.
The Revd. Hodges drew attention to the statistics for those lost in the Great War estimated at ten million troops and a further seven million civilians - truly shocking numbers only eclipsed by an estimated eighty million civilians and military personnel lost in World War 2. The figure becomes even more alarming when we realise that there are just over sixty million people in Britain today.
