Remembrance Services 2017

The School held Remembrance Services this week, with the Hutchie commmunity and invited guests paying tribute to the fallen pupils and FPs killed during WWI and WWII.

An organ prelude opened the annual events, played beautifully by Edward Elgar, followed by a reading from the Head of English, Mr Symington.

The School Captain team then read aloud the names of those killed, with senior pupils standing to represent each fallen Hutchesonian.

Following this, Flora Ritchie, S6, sang a beautiful rendition of Pie Jesu, before School Governor and Minister of Knightswood St Margaret’s Church of Scotland, Rev Sandy Fraser delivered the prayer.   

The Hutchie community then stood for a moment’s silence, with S6 pupil Max Rodney playing ‘The Last Post’ on trumpet.

Words of remembrance were delivered by the Rector, Mr. Gambles, and the school community and attendees took part in a procession to the school War Memorial, accompanied by piper, S3 pupil, Greg Turner.

The Remembrance Service held on Friday, November 10th, included guests Lord Dean of Guild, representing the Merchants House of Glasgow and Hutchesons’ Hospital, Mr Ian Dickson Mrs Irene Dickson, Deacon Convenor, Trades House of Glasgow, Dr Alistair Dorward, Rev Sandy Fraser and Wing Commander J.J. McMeeking.

Very well done to all those involved in making both these poignant services such a success.
