On Friday 9th November, the school gathered in Norwich Cathedral for the annual Remembrance Service to commemorate those who have given their lives in the defence of our country. This year's service was particularly poignant as it was 100 years since the signing of the Armistice. The Lord-Lieutenant for Norfolk, Mr Richard Jewson, J.P, addressed the congregation and spoke of the importance to remember those we have lost. Among hymns and prayers, pupils gave readings and school musicians performed The Last Post. The Cathedral was silent as Housemasters read the names of members of their house who had died in war.
Also on Friday, Norwich School opened its Armistice exhibition 'All Fades to Silence' in the Crypt Gallery. The exhibition is a collaboration between pupils studying Design, English and Creative Writing. The pupils attended a workshop at the Castle Museum looking at the permanent and reserve collection of the Norfolk Regimental Museum. The photographs and resulting creative writing and poetry have been presented in a candlelit exhibition, alongside a installation of shadows made to commemorate the 52 Norwich School pupils who fell in World War I.
The exhibition is free to all and is open until Saturday 17th November: Monday - Friday 12-4pm, Saturday 11-3pm.
