Grace was joined by Sophia Mawer, Head of History, who explained how events like this keep the world wars relevant to the younger generation, helping students to reflect on what soldiers went through and do so nowadays as well. BBC Tees have been in touch to say they have had a lovely reaction from their listeners.
