The Horatius Society

With the Germans just beyond the White Cliffs of Dover, Winston Churchill often recited all 70 stanzas of Horatius at the Bridge from memory. The lessons learned in Horatius undoubtedly helped Churchill stand against all odds to keep the foe at bay.

Each year, 6th graders at Highlands Latin may volunteer to follow in Churchill’s footsteps and memorize all 70 stanzas, 16 pages, 589 lines of Horatius at the Bridge.

To signify their triumph, students receive no grade or extra credit. Instead, they are awarded a dress pin and the Winston Churchill Medal and etch their names alongside fellow classmates in the Horatius Society.

Congratulations to these brave sixth graders!
