CAIS community attended a ceremony on 11 November 2020 to commemorate the 102nd anniversary of the Armistice which ended World War I in 1918.

Students and teachers gathered at the school’s lecture hall to contemplate the sacrifice of all who died in the First World War. The Last Post was played, and a two-minute silence was observed.

Local military historian Bill Lake, who served in Hong Kong with the British Army’s Royal Artillery in 1965, and Albert Lam, the Vice Chairman of Royal British Legion HK & China spoke to students about the significance of Armistice Day and why it was important for them to remember it.
