Brooke Priory School held an assembly on the First World War on Thursday last week.
It was an honour for the school to welcome the High Sheriff of Rutland, Air Commodore Miles Williamson-Noble, the Mayor of Oakham Jayne Woodcock, the Lord Lieutenant of Rutland, Dr Laurence Howard, the heritage and learning officer at Rutland County Museum, Emma Warren, and Major Martyn Cook of the 2nd Battalion The Royal Anglian Regiment to this event.
The assembly has brought together an extended period of study throughout school, in all subject areas, on this topic. The pupils have, in their art and design work, writing, music and performance displayed a remarkably deep understanding. The audience were impressed by the all round ability of the children; their singing, playing, speaking and, most importantly, their composure and professional approach to a lengthy and demanding performance.
