Tudor Grange remembers the fallen soldiers

Today, the students of Tudor Grange Academy Redditch, have taken part in a whole school remembrance service to mark the lives of those who have died in combat.

Staff and students took part in a ceremony led by their CCF army cadets where poppies were laid, poems were read and time was given to reflect and remember those that died whilst the Last Post was played.

Julie Chattoe, School Staff Instructor said “It’s wonderful that the cadets get the opportunity to lead on Remembrance Day and they have been practising for weeks. It is our privilege to do this”.

Jodie Bolter, Principal for Tudor Grange said “It was wonderful to see our school community come together for such an important remembrance service. It is important that we remember the people that have given their lives in service to their country. We have spent break time today raising money for the poppy appeal and talking about grandads and great grandads that fought in the war. It is so important for us as a community to unite in this special remembrance. I am very proud of how each and every one of our students were so respectful – it was a very moving remembrance ceremony”.
