Newark Academy Remembrance Week

This week there have been three Remembrance Assemblies by students from Newark Academy to mark the soldiers who gave their lives during The Great War conflict.

The piece, ‘The Last Hero’ was performed by students from Newark Academy and was based on the last British soldier, George Edwin Ellison to be killed in action ninety minutes before the Armistice came into effect on 11th November 1918.

On Friday 10th November members of The British Legion and Oaks Elderly Residential Home visited Newark Academy and attended one of the assemblies.

Sally Goodman, a teacher at Newark Academy played ‘The Last Post’ at 11.00am on Friday 10th November 2017 in Newark Academy Courtyard where all students and staff observed one minutes silence.
