On Sunday 10th November, representing Hayle Academy, Head Boy and Head Girl, Tommy and Eve, attended the Remembrance Sunday church service held at St Elwyn’s Church which was then followed by the procession to the memorial.
At the memorial, Tommy & Eve read the names of the fallen from both World Wars and laid a wreath on behalf of the students and staff of the school to give thanks for their sacrifice. In the words of Winston Churchill ‘Never was so much owed by so many to so few’.
Both the church service and the ceremony at the war memorial were well attended, including an unofficial ‘fly past’ by a large flock of Canada Geese!
Mrs Hickson attended the ceremony with Tommy and Eve, and was delighted when she received so many commendations from members of the public praising our students for doing such a great job!
Whilst Tommy & Eve officially represented the school, many other Hayle Academy students took part with different organisations, such as the Sea Cadets, Guides, Scouts and Surf Life Saving, to name a few. Our students, Curtis and Victor represented the Army cadets and proudly carried their standards for the organisation.
