Remembrance observed at school and in the local community

On Remembrance Sunday, students from Giles Academy represented the school at the Boston Town Remembrance Parade. Head Students Charlotte Donnelly and Ruby Morley laid a wreath on behalf of the school and younger students Darci Smith (Year 7), Messi Sulitanu (Year 7) and Logan Burrell (Year 8) also attended as school ambassadors.

In our school traditional, on the Friday, our students and uniformed cadets also placed a placed a wreath at the Old Leake Memorial.

Miss Belcher, Head of School said “It was an honour to be a part of the Boston town service for the first time and we were the only school represented from the local area. I look forward to taking part in the parade and church service again next year.”

Throughout last week, students and staff have been getting involved in a variety of ways from selling poppies in aid of the Royal British Legion to incorporating Remembrance into subject lessons.

On Remembrance Day on 11th November at 11am, the whole school stopped during breaktime for a one-minute silence to mark the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the month, which was impeccably observed as we remembered the people who have died in wars around the world.

Each year, we also give students that are part of a RAF, Army or Police Cadets, St John Ambulance or Scouts and Guides the opportunity to wear their uniform throughout the school day.
