A DAY to commemorate the end of World War II would not be complete without a performance of the wartime song "We'll Meet Again".

And one schoolboy's stunning rendition of the Vera Lynn's classic really did take centre stage in a special school commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II.

Bolton School boy Jonathan Featham, aged 12, sang the song, which has taken on extra poignancy during lockdown, as part of the day at Bolton School.

He sang it at home as lockdown measures still mean some pupils are taught at home.

It is not the first time the talented young musician has hit the right note.

He passed his Grade 6 in singing and Grade 1 piano in September.

And Jonathan was the Junior Vocal Finalist in our Bolton School Boys’ Division Young Musician competition this year.

The 75th anniversary of VE day was celebrated last month when strict lockdown measures were in place ­— with only children of key workers in school.

Bolton School devoted a whole day to commemorating the event this week.

History teacher Julian Moore said: “The main objective was to show the boys the impact World War Two had across all subjects and that it was not just about a few more commonly known events.

“All departments worked incredibly hard and resourcefully in these challenging times to produce resources that enabled the boys to see the effects of World War Two.”

In music, pupils learned to play or sing “We’’ll Meet Again” ­— with Jonathan’s rendition posted on his school’s Twitter account.

Examples of work included creating a positive message, while in history boys were tasked with ‘opening’ their own virtual museum linked to an aspect of the war.

In maths, the pupils found out about code-breaking, which played a crucial role in the final defeat of Germany.

Geographers looked at mapping techniques for planning D-Day

Wartime poetry was studied in English and in physics pupils investigated the Dambusters and all the planning that went into it ­—and in physical education young people took part in a World War Two training exercise.

In modern foreign languages, students looked at the impact of war in other countries.

The development of penicillin was explored in biology, while chemists looked at the role of scientists and new synthetics.
