We Shall Remember Them

Remembrance Sunday Events

Students from Minsthorpe Community College paid their respects to all those who have lost their lives in conflicts across the world in a number of ways in the week leading up to Remembrance Sunday. Students from the Year 7 Nurture Group made a wreath to mark the 100th Anniversary of the Armistice and each planted an individual poppy in The Oasis Garden – an area set aside in the College to remember the staff and students of Minsthorpe who have sadly passed away.

The Humanities Team have created a huge Thank You display in their curriculum area that has been decorated by students who have placed their poppies there to remember members of their family who have lost their lives in war or simply to say thank you to those who made the ultimate sacrifice. On Sunday November 11th two students, Alicia Davidson and Kamil Wilczak, accompanied the Principal in the Remembrance Parade and laid a wreath of poppies from the College at the South Elmsall and Moorthrorpe War Memorial to honour the fallen.
