Remembrance Festival

I was really pleased to receive details of Abbey Grange CE High School's Remembrance Festival from Cllr Brenda Lancaster...

It is vitally important that our young people understand how the lives of people in Leeds have been affected by conflicts across the world and great to see Abbey Grange colleagues developing this Festival of Remembrance which will run from 2nd November to 15th November. It is a hugely ambitious project involving veterans, students, staff, BBC Look North, BBC Radio Leeds and the Evening Post.

Students and staff at Abbey Grange have also been inspired to create their own website with study trips focusing on World War 1 and World War 2 and remembrance activities in school as the stimulus. They have also collected relatives memories and researched the role Leeds played during major conflicts. They have dedicated Project Inspire to the brave men and women who continue to inspire them.
