November 11th - Benton Park falls silent.
At 11am on Friday 11th November the whole school community came together to observe the two minute silence to mark the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice at the end of the First World War. The reflection was observed with immense respect for those servicemen and women who have given their lives in conflict since 1914. Dan Moody (Year 9) and George Crowther (Year 8) made the ceremony all the more poignant by playing The Last Post. This was an incredibly moving event as all years gathered together to show their gratitude for the sacrifice made by so many over the past century.
