From education to employment

We will remember them – students stand together in silence

Public Services students at New City College held a Remembrance Day Parade to honour British and Commonwealth service members who have died in wars and other military conflicts since the onset of the First World War.

Hundreds of students and staff at the Havering Sixth Form campus in Hornchurch, gathered to watch the parade and observe a two-minute silence at 11am on 11th November, while others fell silent in their classes.

The Quad area of the college was decorated with Poppy wreaths and banners and student Grace Schofield played The Last Post on her trumpet as the Parade stood to attention.

Deputy Principal Phil Hall read out a Remembrance poem from the Royal British Legion that paid tribute to those who have served to defend our democratic freedoms and way of life.

During the weeks leading up to the Parade, students on the Travel & Tourism course sold poppies at the college to raise money for the Royal British Legion.
