Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day, also known as Armistice Day or Poppy Day, is a day to commemorate those who gave their lives in combat in the two world wars.

Remembrance Day takes place on the 11th hour of the 11th month every year, to mark the 11th hour of November 1918 when the guns of the Western Front fell silent after more than four years of continuous warfare during the First World War.

Students and staff at the academy commemorated the event this year by observing a one minute silence and laying a specially made poppy wreath at the academy’s memorial garden.   

We would like to thank our student ambassadors and cadet representatives also, who sold poppy items throughout the week at break and lunchtimes for the poppy appeal.
