A Reminder to Remember

A group of students decided to do their part to remind the Hertswood community of the importance of Remembrance Day, by coming into school in their uniforms from Army Cadets and Air Cadets.

The students believe that many people their age don't realise just how important the day is, or how different the world would be without the sacrifices made by members of the armed forces. All of the cadets will be volunteering their time to sell poppies and participate in parades.

The group were keen to encourage others to considering joining Cadets groups, saying that it had taught them more things than they could list, including discipline, courage, integrity, and self-encouragement.
