ACS commemorates 100 years since the end of World War I

Last week our school commemorated 100 years since the end of World War One and our students had the opportunity to take part in a series of events to commemorate this historic date.

Throughout the week our History Department led special assemblies to all year groups and on Friday 12 November we were honoured to be joined by Major Gogna from the British Army and the Historian Ms Kiran Sahota who spoke to our students in Year 7, 8 and 9 about the contributions made by Commonwealth soldiers in the First World War.

To honour  and remember those who lost their lives in the war, our students created the most amazing Poppy Wall in our school, with hundreds of poppies hanging down in our Canteen Hall.

A special thank you to Ms Cathcart and the entire History Department for coordinating this project and for doing such an amazing job with the students.
