'We will remember.'Posted on: 12th Nov 2021
Each year, the students and staff of the Academy take part in the annual Remembrance commemoration on 11th November. We encourage students who are members of the Army Cadets, Scouts and Sea Cadets to come into school in their uniforms and they will then assist other students in taking the poppies around the classrooms so that all can donate for their poppy.
At 11am, the Academy fell silent and a member of staff read out Laurence Binyon's poem, For the Fallen, which was written in 1914 and which contains the famous verse:
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
Thanks go to all who donated to the annual British Legion appeal. The brave soldiers will not be forgotten by the Academy.
