Today at 11am our MNMT panto dancers stopped rehearsal to honour the 2 minutes silence.
Our juniors, inters and Seniors watched the TV as Big Ben struck 11, thanks to Miss Joanne and Miss Rebecca for honouring the KH tradition of respecting this Sunday. So children and young people understand the sacrifice our Armed Forces and beyond made for them.
“ For your tomorrow, we give our today”
We also managed to fit in a birthday celebration for Meg and even our dancers stuck at home due to various covid situations, joined in not only rehearsals but remembrance and birthday celebrations on line.
