Staff and Students attend Service of Remembrance
On Thursday, 6 June, the 75th Anniversary of D-Day's Operation Overlord, a Service of Remembrance was held at ‘Harry's Patch’, in Ivybridge, to remember all those who have laid down their lives in combat to secure democracy.
The Remembrance Day garden had been refurbished last year, following a competition held by the Design Technology Department, where students at Ivybridge Community College were invited to design something fitting for the location. Among the winning designers were Year 9 students Anna Lake and Jenny Pitcher who represented the College at the service, accompanied by Mrs Garlick and Mrs English from the Design Technology Department. Mrs Garlick wore her father’s medals including the Légion d'Honneur which is the highest Order of France awarded to surviving veterans from D-Day.
