Finding myself travelling between meetings just before 11 am today, I decided it would be appropriate to stop at the cenotaph in Dukinfield to observe the Remembrance Silence.
When I arrived there, there were a number of children and staff from your school, along with other members of the community.
I think it is important to acknowledge, not only how pleased I was to see that the children were allowed to observe what was happening at the cenotaph, but also the impeccable behaviour of the children representing your school. I know, working in education, how all too often we only get to hear about the bad things that happen, and I think it is very important to comment about good behaviour too.
The children were a credit to your school, and I hope you are able to pass my comments on to your staff and children.
