Ypres Salient Visit for Year 9 StudentsClick for Full Sized Version

Year 9 at the Ellington and Hereson School crammed in a full day of First World War studying in the Ypres Salient last Friday. Starting early in the morning students were able to visit the new Flanders Field Museum in Ypres, walk through the remains of real trenches at Hooge Crater and complete the day by taking part in the ceremony of the Last Post at the Menin Gate.

Head of History Mr Millard commented “The numbers going to the Menin Gate service each evening really demonstrates the power of remembrance in this centenary period. I think our students were surprised to see so many people there as they laid a wreath of remembrance. Learning about the conditions in which soldiers as young as our own students had to contend with to survive had a powerful effect and will add a new perspective to their studies.”

The Last Post Ceremony takes place each evening at 8pm at the Menin Gate in Ypres, Belgium. The Menin Gate was built in 1927 in remembrance to over 90,000 British and Commonwealth soldiers who died in this area and have no known grave.

Molly Curtis, Sophie Neary and Steven Easley laid the wreath in a ceremony witnessed by over 1,000 people. This July will mark the 30,000th Last Post ceremony, over 100 years since fighting broke out in this area in the First World War.

Local Author John Carnell Visits Year 7 StudentsWBD.02

To help us celebrate World Book Day (5 March 2015) a local author, John Carnell visited EHS to talk to all our Year 7 students. Being a true professional, he was not fazed by this and turned up fully prepared with a draft copy of his new novel, Dingbats.

WBD.01John grew up on a local council estate in Ramsgate during the punk era. School was not a happy place for him and he was “quite a naughty boy at school who challenged his teachers!”. After a brief talk about his youth, John read the two draft chapters of his latest children’s book. The students were very privileged in being the very first people ever to hear this story which John had kept as a close guarded secret. They were all amazed that he wanted to share this with them and what’s more, he wanted them to help decide the plot.

Denim Rogues - Poisoned Love

In early September, Keelan Layton and Declan Fields – then in Y11 – took part in the Kent Cultural Celebrations as the DENIM ROGUES.
The standard of all the competitors in the show was very high indeed and the panel of judges for the event included Craig Revel Horwood (Strictly Come Dancing) and Kaddy Lee Preston (BBC South East television presenter).

In the video below they perform of one of their own songs in this clip – POISONED LOVE - was their live performance in front of an audience of 700 people at The Assembly Hall Theatre in Tunbridge Wells.

Competition for places in this County-wide competition was very stiff so the boys did amazingly well to earn their place in the finals.

Community Service Awardaward

In October last year the sixth form students of The Ellington and Hereson School in Ramsgate staged a musical show “Bringing it Back” which raised over £820 for the Motor house project, designed to resurrect the sadly derelict former motor museum in Ramsgate.

Last month a local awards show, hosted at The King’s theatre in Ramsgate recognized the hard work of the students and staff with the honour of a glass obelisk: The Obelisk Award for “The Best Community Spirit”. The group were also nominated for the award for best entertainment, with their routine from Chicago.

Thanks to Mr. Ralph Hoult for organising this and to all those who supported the students’ hard work.

6th Form Core Studies at Work

A handful of Ellington and Hereson’s Year 13’s, Nikiece, Shannon, Hayley and Mercedes, recently went to visit students from Years 3 and 4 at Christ Church Junior School to listen to them read and record feedback in the student’s book records. The sixth formers gained experience of representing our school and giving valuable time to the community.

The experience will go towards the student’s IBCC core studies of community service. The visit was so successful that future arrangements have been made to visit the school on a weekly basis to continue the voluntary reading and listening.
