Lest we forget - Remembrance week.
In the week prior to Remembrance Day, students and staff at Ark William Parker attended assemblies led by Assistant Principal Mr Burchell, a former serving marine.
On Monday 13 November, we also held Remembrance services in the main hall. The services were led by students and Reverend Charles Hill from Christ Church, Blacklands to remember and honour those who have sacrificed themselves to secure and protect our freedom.
Student Milo and Yousuf read "For the Fallen" by Robert Laurence Binyon in the Year 7-9 Service. Milo and Yousuf laid a wreath at the academy’s memorial which we have for our boys who were lost in the two world wars.
The service concluded with the sound of the ‘Last Post’ played by Shelley Clark, Head of House.
