Lest we forget

Remembrance honoured at BST

On 8 November, The British School in Tokyo (BST) Principal Paul Tough had the privilege of attending the Remembrance Sunday Service at the Commonwealth War Cemetery in Yokohama. He was accompanied by Head Prefects Ilina and Erina, who laid a wreath to commemorate.

Remembrance Day itself was 11 November, and BST honoured the occasion with an assembly and two minutes of silence.

The school is proud to share a few photos of the remembrance displays which were made for the tutor room doors across the Secondary School at the BST Showa campus. This was organised by our History Ambassadors:

  • Luna Miyajima
  • Ronan O’Driscoll
  • Luke Pain
  • Jamie Perring
  • Sakura Tanaka
  • Lucas O’Connor
  • Zoya Subramanian
