SCHOOLS INVITED TO APPLY FOR INVITATIONS TO SCOTLAND’S ARMISTICE CENTENARY SERVICE

Schools across Scotland are being invited to nominate two teachers and up to eight pupils to attend Scotland’s commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the First Armistice, taking place at Glasgow Cathedral on Sunday 11 November 2018 at 4pm.

Whilst earlier in the day Services of Remembrance will have been held across the country, as we remember the fallen of World War One and all conflicts since, in Glasgow Cathedral our thoughts will turn to reflecting on that first Armistice 100 years ago and to the many emotions felt as the guns fell silent:

  • Sadness & Relief:
    sadness for the loss of life but relief that war was near an end
  • Joy & Victory:
    joy of returning home from war and for the sense of victory despite all the odds
  • Seeds of Change:
    life could never be the same again
  • Courage for the Future:
    in uncertain times, hold on to values and to hope

World War One had an impact on all generations and it is hoped the Service will reflect this by being multi-generational.

Those interested in applying should return the below form to ScottishCommemorationsPanel@gov.scot by Friday 12 October 2018.
