Thank you to Major Ridley (CCF Contingent Commander), our Chaplain, Mr Hammersley and all the CCF staff and cadets for Sunday’s Remembrance Parade and Service. The day was truly outstanding and a fitting tribute from the cadets. There cannot be many other schools that run such an inclusive and impressive Remembrance Sunday service.
In addition to the parades and service, there was also an art installation in chapel, a reading of the role of honour by cadets, a spine-tingling performance of ‘The Last Post’ and ‘Reveille’ from Gabby M (Brook’s) on the trumpet, a Chavasse display, pupil artwork, and a bake sale that raised over £650. With the addition of the money raised through selling poppies, we will be able to make a donation of almost £800 to the Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal.
It was an incredibly positive experience for everyone involved and for the parents, members of Liverpool College Foundation, governors and other guests who attended. It was also a great opportunity to show and remind parents and guests what the CCF does and why we do it.
