STUDENTS at Rastrick High School took part in a Remembrance service.

Students observed two minutes’ silence at school yesterday before Bethan Plant and Eleanor Readshaw-Senior played The Last Post on the bugle.

They took time to remember the 32 boys of Rastrick Grammar School who lost their lives between 1914 and 1918 and the 18 former students who died during the Second World War.

They also remembered the members of the 3rd Battalion Yorkshire Regiment who have just returned from a tour of Afghanistan.

Head boy Louis Frear and head girl Davina Collins spoke during the service.

Representatives of each year group spoke. They were Year 7 Lauren Riley, Year 8 Adam Watson, Year 9 Ellie Parry, Year 10 Ben Harris and Year 11 Adam Aslam.
