 STAFF and students of Winterbourne International Academy commemorated the centenary of the start of the First World War with a number of activities and acts of remembrance.

A long bell sounded throughout the academy's new building at 11am on Armistice Day to mark the start of a two minute silence involving all 1,800 students. When the second bell sounded at 11.02am, 30 music students, scattered around the corridors of the new build, surprised their classmates with a 'flash mob' rendition of The Last Post.
