Remembrance Services 2018


The School held Remembrance Services this month, with the Hutchie community and invited guests paying tribute to the former pupils killed during WWI and WWII.

An organ prelude opened the annual events held on November 8th and 9th, played by Edward Elgar, followed by a reading from S6 pupil, Iqra. 

Following this, a Hymn was sang and readings were delivered by the Head Boy and Head Girl Team. 

The School Choir then sang a beautiful rendition of Angus Dei from Requiem, before Leader of the Well Community Church, Mrs Jenny Cheung, delivered a prayer.   

The Hutchie community then stood for a moment’s silence, with music teacher Mr Rhodes 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 pipers, Craig (S5) on Thursday and Greg (S3) on Friday. 

The Remembrance Service held on Friday, November 9th, included School Governors and guests including the Lord Dean of Guild, Mr Ian Dickson, The Hutchesons’ Hospital representative, Mr David Dobson, Deacon Convenor, Trades House of Glasgow, Mr Tom McInally, Hutchesons' Board of Governors chairman Ms Ruth Walker and Former Senior Depute Rector, Mr Graham MacAllister. 

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