Students observe Citizenship Ceremony and meet dignitaries at Hastings Town Hall

Ark William Parker Academy is the first school in Hastings to be invited to observe a citizenship ceremony at the Town Hall in Hastings. Nine students attended the event on Tuesday 17th October which was to celebrate a group of individuals ‘swearing’ their allegiance to the Queen.

The ceremony was led by the High Sheriff, Mrs Maureen Chowen, who  gave the welcome on behalf of the County and Major General John Moore-Bick CBE, Deputy Lieutenant who gave the welcome on behalf of HM The Queen. Hastings Mayor, Councillor Judy Rogers also attended.

Director of PSHE Collette Iglinski said “We are pleased our students had the opportunity to observe this ceremony. Our students said this was an interesting experience for them as ‘citizens’. They had not understood what a significant event it is for individuals undertaking British citizenship. They also enjoyed seeing and speaking to the High Sheriff and Deputy Lieutenant who were wearing ceremonial dress.”
