Remembrance Day

Posted: November 4, 2016

Today Discovery College observed Remembrance day and marked the occasion with a moving trumpet performance by DC Parent Wendy Thompson, supported by two DC students, Uma Esquivelzeta and Hugo Falcon Adam, playing the Last Post and followed by a moment of silence.

Remembrance Day (sometimes known as Poppy Day) is a memorial day observed in many countries around the world, including HK, to remember the members of their armed forces who have died in the line of duty. Remembrance Day is observed on 11 November in most countries to recall the end of hostilities of World War I on that date in 1918. Hostilities formally ended “at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month”.
