Stoke on Trent College holds special event to remember war heroes

Students, staff and partners gathered at Stoke on Trent College on Friday, November 10, 2023, to mark Armistice Day.

The College held its annual Remembrance Event, which was led by students and Reverend Geoff Eze and included a parade by Public Service students and the laying of creative wreaths and crosses made by the students.

The event is a neutral all-faith/no-faith event and provides an opportunity to reflect on and remember events that have impacted our futures. The event was also recorded to be sent to care homes and other community establishments in order that they can participate by watching on Armistice Day.

Lisa Capper MBE, Principal and Chief Executive at Stoke on Trent College, said, “Our annual Remembrance Event is a special date in the College calendar for students, staff, VIP partners and the wider community. It is important for us to come together as a college community, to say thank you to all of our public services and especially the fallen war heroes – and particularly those who were previous students of the College to ensure they are not forgotten.”

The Remembrance Event concludes a week of dedicated learning and reflection activities at Stoke on Trent College.  During the week students from a variety of subject areas have taken part in a range of activities including fundraising initiatives.
