STUDENTS TAKE PART IN RAF REGT. FREEDOM PARADE IN RICHMOND
A group of Air Cadets from Richmond School attended the RAF Regiment Freedom Parade in Richmond Town Centre yesterday. It was an impressive display by the Regiment in full military uniform and accompanied by the regimental band, who shared a wonderful medley of music. Looking very impressive in their own uniforms, the students from Years 8 to 12 followed the Parade and watched the salute at the Trinity Tower curtilage.
It was great to see the obvious sense of comradeship between the students of all ages and year groups. They marked the salute with such respect and were a real credit to themselves, the Air Cadets and Richmond School. We heard several spectators from the town commenting on how lovely it was to see them there, clearly impressed with the way they conducted themselves. All the students spoke very warmly about their involvement with the Air Cadets and the fantastic experiences they gain, with some students even recently getting the chance to fly themselves.
It was a great opportunity to show our respect at this special event and we thank Flynn, Jenish (who even attended on his Prom Day!), Beth, Jack, Olivia, Sam and Alfie for representing the school.
Thank you to Mrs Sarah Gleave and Dr Jane Scott for organising the event and to Richmond 2040 ATC for their support.
