Teign Remembers

11th November 2021

At the 11th hour, on the 11th day on the 11th month over 1,000 people from our school community stood together on the courts at Teign to hold a respectful 2 minute silence for those who have fallen in conflicts. Head teacher, Suzannah Wharf read a Wilfred Owen poem to set the scene then the silence was marked, as is tradition, by the last post.

Teign School was honoured to have a return visit from local Second World War Navy Veteran Tony Portman (pictured). He gave up his day once again to meet students and share his experiences of serving on HMS Nelson as a young man in World War II. These first-hand accounts will be treasured and remembered by the numerous students who met him.
