Remembrance 2020

Remembrance 2020

Remembrance Sunday, an important date for many in our alumni community, was celebrated in a different but equally moving way this year. 

Usually on Remembrance Sunday, Alleyn's CCF and Edward Alleyn Club, in conjunction with CCF from Dulwich College and JAGS, parade through Dulwich Village to a commemorative service at Christ's Chapel. Due to Covid-19 related restrictions, these activities were unable to go ahead in their usual format this year. 

On Sunday 8 November Alleyn's observed a moving act of commemoration in the Great Hall, a short film of which is now available for viewing on the School's here 

During the service members of the Alleyn's staff, CCF and School Captain represented the Edward Alleyn Club, the Heads and pupils of the Foundation Schools, the Dulwich Estate and the Parish of St Barnabas with Christ's Chapel. Mr Skinnard introduced the service, which was then led by Alleyn's Chaplain, Rev Lander.

On Wednesday, 11 November, the whole Alleyn’s community came together in an act of Remembrance. Livestreamed to all Junior and Senior School pupils and staff across the School, the service began with an opening address from Reverend Liz Lander who remembered and honoured the sacrifice of those who have died in the service of their country.
