Middlesbrough College remembers the fallen

Students, staff and visitors to Middlesbrough College have shown that they have an appreciation of the sacrifice of previous generations by raising over £200 for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.

Each year poppies are available for people to buy in the week leading up to the College’s Remembrance Ceremony. This year’s ceremony took place on Saturday 12 November. Former pupils of Middlesbrough High School and Acklam Grammar School, both of which preceded the current Middlesbrough College, gathered with the Chairman of Governors, Bob Brady, and representatives of staff and students to pay their respects at the annual Remembrance Ceremony.

The Remembrance Ceremony has taken place at the College’s new site each year since the College relocated from its former sites.

The Ceremony began with a short speech providing some background information on some of those named on the two Memorial plaques which between them commemorate over 200 former pupils and staff of Middlesbrough High School who died in the First and Second World Wars. Poppy wreaths were then laid by a representative of the Principal and by an ‘old boy’, after which those present observed a Two Minutes Silence.

After the ceremony, many of the old boys present shared their memories of those whose names appear on the plaques and subsequent generations.
