We will remember
We are proud of our students and staff who took part in Remembrance Services and Parades across Richmondshire and further afield at the weekend. Students represented the Ministry of Defence Cadet Forces, Scouts and other organisations and Rori and Ems, Year 7 and 8 service students, laid a wreath on behalf of the school in Friary Gardens. Mrs Potter, Headteacher, said: “Rori and Ems were the most excellent ambassadors for our school in the way that they conducted themselves so respectfully throughout the Remembrance Service and wreath laying ceremony. It was a privilege for us to have been part of these events.”
Jon Giddens, our Maintenance Manager who served in the Royal Signals from 1989 to 2012, took part in the parade in London and said: “It was an absolute honour to be once again attending the Remembrance Parade at the Cenotaph in London.”
Theo, Rosemary and Scarlett, Year 7 service students, attended the Service to Remember at Ripon Cathedral on Friday with Mrs Potter and Mrs Gleave. They were delighted to see the stunning wall hanging that our Year 7 students created by making 100 poppies.
