STATIONERS’ CROWN WOODS ACADEMY SERVICE OF REMEMBRANCE

A service of Remembrance was held in the quad of Stationers’ Crown Woods Academy where students, staff, Governors, members of the Royal British Legion and Stationers’ Livery Company; and pupils from Eastcote Primary, gathered to remember all those who died in service to their country.

Year 10 Ashdown School student, Esther Mandisodza played The Last Post and a two minute silence was observed across the whole Academy at 11am.  Executive Principal, David Millar, said a prayer and the Royal British Legion read The Commitment after which wreaths and poppies were laid.

The Academy has always observed a two minute silence on Remembrance Day but this is the first time a full service has been held and the idea originated from Year 11 student cadet Charlie Ward who wished to involve everyone in a Remembrance ceremony.  All Academy student cadets were involved in the organisation of the event which ran with military precision.

David Millar, Executive Principal, said:  “It was a very moving service and I am extremely proud of all the students, particularly Charlie and those in the Cadet forces who organised it.  This will now be a firm fixture in our Academy Calendar.”
