On Remembrance Sunday, three of our Head Students along with Mr Martin, Head of School represented Cowley Academy by taking part in the Donington Town Parade and placing a poppy wreath at the memorial service.

Throughout last week, students and staff have been getting involved in a variety of ways from selling poppies in aid of the Royal British Legion to incorporating Remembrance into subject lessons.

In the school hall, there was a stunning poppy display that featured hundreds of colourful poppies that were individually decorated by students. It was a great way of getting student in different Houses to work together with amazing results. Winners were also selected from each House.

On Remembrance Day on 11th November at 11am, the whole school stopped during breaktime for a one-minute silence to mark the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the month, which was impeccably observed as we remembered the people who have died in wars around the world.

Each year, we also give students that are part of a RAF, Army or Police Cadets, St John Ambulance or Scouts and Guides the opportunity to wear their uniform throughout the school day.
