Act of Remembrance 2023

John Lyon students, staff and community members solemnly remember those who fought for our freedom.

On Friday 10th November, six of our Old Lyonians joined the entire Senior School community and gathered on the Red House lawn to observe a two-minute silence ahead of Armistice Day. 

The names of Old Lyonians who gave their lives in service were also read out as a show of gratitude. 

The ceremony concluded with Andy Marsden-Jones (OL1973), OLA Secretary, laying a wreath along with our Head, Mrs Rose Hardy, as a symbolic gesture to honor the fallen and remember all those who have lost their lives in conflict.

OLs in atttendance:

Ian Frost (OL1985), Douglas Milsom (OL1957), Mike Christelow (OL1973), Rev Hugh Wikner (OL1964) and Ian McAulay (OL1964).
