Character Education – Respect, Charity, Tolerance and Empathy
On Remembrance Day 2020, Ivybridge Community College students, namely, James and Alice from Year 10 and Mac and Chloe from Year 7, represented the whole College, staff and governors in the laying of a wreath at the memorial cross in Ivybridge.
This act was in honour and respect of all who have served this country, and to those who still continue to do so.
Although Remembrance Services have taken a different form this year, we are proud to support the Royal British Legion. Students in all of their classes observed the 2 minutes silence, the most sacrosanct element of Remembrance Day, where they were respectful and thoughtful, bowing their heads in honour, before listening to a recording of the Last Post.
The College was extremely proud that Mailli, in Year 8, played the Last Post for the Ivybridge ceremony held on Sunday, 8 November.
“The College always seeks to mark this poignant day and, although we were unable to all physically gather together, the respect and sentiment was still felt across the College site. Thank you to our students who have contributed to the community honouring of this occasion.” Kelly Olive, Deputy Principal
