Students from Garden International School (GIS) paid respects to victims of war during a moving Remembrance Day service.
At GIS there was a special whole school assembly where a minute’s silence was observed and the Last Post was played on November 11. At 11:11 a.m., students and staff stood for a minute’s silence to remember the fallen.
Students also read out several poems, including one by a Vietnamese poet to highlight the fact that Remembrance Day thinks about the victims of conflict from all around the globe.
A group of students from near Pattaya travelled to Kanchanaburi to visit a War Cemetery and took part in a ceremony to lay wreaths.
