Armistice Centenary at Garforth

A number of fantastic tributes were created by staff and students last week, remembering 100 years since the end of the First World War.

All of our form groups from Year 7-11 created a chain of red, green and black tributes, with each link containing the name of a fallen soldier. The chains were then hung across the Academy, lining the corridors, reception area and offices. This gave students a chance to reflect on individuals who gave their lives, with a number of form time sessions spent crafting each unique chain.

A bake sale also took place on Thursday and Friday, where students sold the tribute cakes that they had made at home (as well as some that were made by our GCSE Food Technology groups). Some fantastic cakes were made, with all proceeds being donated to the Poppy appeal.

For the past fortnight, the reception area of the Academy has been decorated with poster tributes made by KS3 History students, forming the backdrop to our main poppy appeal sales desk, where staff and students have been making donations through sales of poppies in various guises. Our student volunteers have worked extremely hard and we are proud of all of their hard work during this important period of reflection.

A special thanks to Ms Wynn, Ms Phillips and Mrs Williams who have worked extremely hard in organising these events. Please follow our Twitter page @DeltaGarforth to see more pictures from our events.
