All of those that make up the St. Ninian's High School Community have once again played their part in actively remembering those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.

Two minutes Silence on Thursday 11th November

At 11am both of our school buildings fell silent so we could collectively remember and pay respects to the former students, staff and other Manx people who gave their lives during the Great War and subsequent wars. 11am falls during the busy morning break time and it was incredibly poignant to see every member of our school community stand still and silent for the two minutes of collective respect. The Last Post was played by Year 12 students, Emma Smith at Upper School and Rowan Weeks at Lower School.

Onchan Remembrance Sunday Service

On Sunday Lower School students and staff attended this service and laid a wreath at the Onchan War Memorial on behalf of the School.

Douglas Remembrance Sunday Service

On Sunday our Head Students, Tori Leece and Thomas Halliwell took part in the service at the Douglas War Memorial and laid a wreath on behalf of the School.

St. Ninian's Art

Mrs Footer, one of our Art teachers, also decorated our Lower School hall with beautifully created poppies to help further raise an awareness of the significance of this date.

“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning,

We will remember them.”
