Greenfields pays tribute to the Duke of Edinburgh
Today, the school fell silent for a minute as everyone paid tribute to the Prince Phillip, the Duke of Edinburgh and reflected upon his long and remarkable lifetime of service, ahead of his funeral tomorrow. We remembered the contribution he has played to our country, supporting the Queen and being the longest serving consort in English history. We also thought about the Prince Phillip’s service in the British Navy, serving in World War Two over eighty years ago, the fact that he was a keen sportsman when he was young, and the fact that the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme was set up to support young people across the country. We celebrated the fact that Prince Phillip was nearly 100 years, and that he was the beloved husband, father, grandad and great-grandad to a large family, who will be very sad at his passing, but will have lots of lovely memories of him. We finished our tribute by thinking about how we can we could offer support at this time, and what difference do we make to the people around us.
