Greenhead Remembers

Today, Friday 9th November 2018, the students and staff here at GC joined together to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I.

An incredible number of students and staff all turned up to the service, which took place in the College hall at 11am. Members of the GC Student Association, Charlotte Armstrong and James Fishwick, read aloud a short reading which was followed by 2 minutes silence completed with a playing of ‘The Last Post’.

A number of staff and students then walked across the road to Greenhead Park to lay our poppy wreath at the war memorial. Student Equality and Diversity officer, Simone Dawes, laid the wreath whilst another moment of silence was held.

The reading from our students follows:

This Sunday marks the 100th year anniversary of the Armistice and the ending of the First World War.

Greenhead College would like to remember the fallen from this conflict and all subsequent victims of war.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

(Audience Repeat): We will remember them.

We would now like you to join us in observing a 2 minute silence.
