In upper school assembly this week we learnt about D-Day because it was the 80th anniversary on June 6th. We also learnt about the important role women played during World War 2 whilst the soldiers were fighting, including nursing and radio communications.

As the years pass, there are less people in our lives that have memories of the war. But we discussed the connections we might have to older generations who came before us. Some of us share a middle name or even a first name with grandparents and great grandparents who were alive during WW2. Our parents and grandparents can pass stories down to us that we can then pass on ourselves. It makes us feel connected to history as well as family.
