Lessons from the past…
This year’s Remembrance events will be particularly poignant for many. Not only will people be remembering the fallen of two world wars and other conflicts, but they are bound to reflect on the continuing conflicts in Ukraine and the Middle East.
At OCS we want our young people to appreciate the sacrifices that so many people made and how it has helped to shape their futures, despite these events being increasingly in the past. The recent news headlines have once again reminded everyone that conflict is ever present in our societies and our young people will rightly study events and draw their own lessons from both the past and the present.
We will be marking Remembrance weekend with them, and will be helping them to understand what the weekend represents and why it is important to so many people around the world. We hope that they will honour those that lost their lives as well as look to the future and hopefully a more peaceful time.
