School falls silent to honour the fallen

Holy Trinity Secondary School fell silent this morning as staff and children congregated to commemorate the sacrifice of those who have lost their lives in combat.

At 11am on Friday November 11, heads bowed at the school in Buckswood Drive as a lone trumpeter played the Last Post.
