Students commemorate WW1 heroes

Published on 18/10/18

Cromer Academy's senior prefects have helped commemorate those who gave their lives in the Great War with a special remembrance parade.

Sophie Lewis, Daisy-May Mostyn, Ben Pearce, Lily Dyball, and Sam Cooper helped carry a Torch of Remembrance as it arrived at Halsey House, Cromer, a care home for former service personnel on Monday, October 15.

The torch is being taken around Norfolk for a series of events marking the centenary of the 1918 Armistice, arriving at Norwich Castle on Sunday, October 21.

Headteacher Antony Little said: "We were really pleased to be able to support this inter-generational event.

"Our war heroes are such an important part of our community and for students to have the chance to meet those who have fought for freedom is an inspiring thing to do."
