NKC Lest We Forget Remembrance Ceremony

North Kent College students organised a remembrance service to mark 100 years since the armistice of WW1.

Both staff and students showed their respect for the fallen war heroes with Public Services organising a commemorative wreath-laying and remembrance ceremony on Friday 9th November to pay their respects to all of those who lost their lives during WW1. A wonderful idea was a wall of remembrance where people wrote their thoughts and thanks. The ceremony ended with a 2 minute silence to honour those who gave their lives for our country. 

Painting and maintenance students from Gravesend painted a commemorative wall and created “Tommy” figures and upon each soldier they put the details of a serviceperson who lived within the areas of Gravesend.

Joshua Talbot, Public Services student said “I think today is so important as we can should our solidarity and respect as a college”.

Nikki Franks, Curriculum Manager Public Services “Our Public Services students are all hoping to progress onto careers into various public services sectors, in order to support our nation. Our point of view as a college is that we want to help our students develop that spirit of service and to instil in them an understanding of what service means – and that means reflecting on those who have gone before us”.
