To mark 97 years since the end of World War One on the 11th November 1918, Albany students took part in a whole school remembrance assembly, which included a minute silence. To mark the occasion Head Boy, Christopher Ashworth and Head Girl, Elizabeth Worrall-Kay laid a wreath at the school’s garden of remembrance.
Headteacher Mr Mayland said, “The North West region has 11% of the UK population, and yet provides 26% of the Armed Services and so it is particularly important for our community to uphold the tradition of remembrance.”
“It is absolutely right that young people today remember those who have sacrificed their lives to protect others. Albany Academy has a very strong track record of supporting charities, but Remembrance goes beyond our support of the Royal British Legion. Today is an opportunity for our school community to all gather and pay our respects to those people who have sadly died in wars around the world.”
