Remembrance Service - 10 November

Kmvlfnizutkgsbmnxkvt

The whole academy stood in silence at 11am on Friday 10 November, during our Remembrance Service in the Sports Hall, as students reflected on the great sacrifices made for our freedom and democracy in Britain. Our newly elected Student President Adam Williams read ‘In Flanders Field’ to the full school audience, whilst in turn a representative from each VMG laid the wreath of poppies made by fellow tutees. Mr Wappat, Principal led the ceremonies.

Our cello group performed a moving piece ‘Scarborough Fair’, supported by Mrs Trenholm on piano, as students entered to a slide show of images from WW1, as well as more recent conflicts. Mr Collins preformed ‘The Last Post’ on trumpet.

Students who volunteer in the community, through the Scouts and uniformed services cadets, also showed their respects by wearing the uniform on the day, and poppies for the Royal British Legion sold out.

It is the second time we have held such a ceremony with the whole school, and the respect and care shown by students throughout was as ever exemplary. Thank you to everyone for making such an important occasion so memorable.
