Croxley Green Remembrance Parade - 11th November 2018
Today, 21 students from Year 7 and 8 represented the school in Croxley Green's Remembrance Parade, the Civic Service of Remembrance which followed and the wreath laying at the memorial on the Green.
The students, who were impeccably behaved throughout, had volunteered to take part in the day's events, organised and led by Mrs Cox, Faculty Co-ordinator for Humanities. It was also fantastic to see so many parents there to witness their children's involvement and join in marking this historic occasion. Liam Bishop-Gregs and Grace Martin-Dye laid the wreath on behalf of the school whilst the remaining 19 students - and many others who had chosen to attend with their families - looked on. Having learnt about the sacrifices of Croxley Green residents during our assembly on Friday, this service brought the well documented local history to life for our students. For example, it was particularly poignant for them to walk down New Road and view the pictures of poppies which represented the residences of the fallen from the First World War.
It was, indeed, a proud moment for the school to be part of this community event on such a momentous occasion. No doubt the staff and students who were there will remember the centenary for many years to come.
