Lest We Forget

Avila College students, staff and special guests paid their respects to service men and women at a whole school assembly. The last post was played and it was followed by a minutes silence. Guest speaker Lynn Berry co founded the 5,000 poppies project and she spoke about the inspiration behind the idea, which was to pay tribute to her Father who served in the war. The project has been a global success. It pays repect to those who have served and it also bring communities together. Lynn will soon travel to England to oversee an installation of the poppies at the Chelsea Flower Show where she hopes the Queen will visit to see first hand the result of so many peoples contribution.
