Ynysfach  School’s Remembrance Service



On Friday the 10th of November, at 11 a.m, Class 6 from Ynysfach Primary School took part in a moving Remembrance Service at the village War Memorial.  The Resolven Branch of the British Legion and St David’s Church were both involved in organising what has become an annual tribute to “The Fallen” by Ynysfach pupils.

There was a brief flurry of rain before the children arrived, but the sun shone fitfully throughout the service conducted by Father Andrew Davies.

The children took part by reading aloud every name on the War memorial They also read poems and a Remembrance Prayer for Children and a youngster solemnly laid a wreath on the steps of the Memorial on behalf all his schoolmates.

The youngsters observed a sombre silence throughout the whole ceremony, which included the Last Post and the Raising and Lowering of the Flag.
