Ellington and Hereson students say: We Will Remember ThemRDay 01

Ellington and Hereson students observed the passing of Remembrance Day with a variety of activities and services.

The school council attended the main Ramsgate town centre service, accompanied by SAS veteran Alistair Thomson. The students all joined in with the service of hymns and behaved impeccably and were an asset to the school. Meanwhile History Year 13 students visited World War One graves at St Peters Church, Broadstairs. Kevin and Janet Sayer of the Lions Club guided the group around stories of more than 40 soldiers from the local area that were fatally wounded in the conflict.

Battle of ArnhemBren

In the lead up to Remembrance day Bill Thomson and Wally Smith from the local Royal British Legion branch visited EHS to talk about the Normandy landings, the Battle of Arnhem and the work of the RBL locally. Wally Smith, a veteran of World War Two spoke movingly of his experiences preparing for D-Day, fighting in Holland and being held in a German prisoner of war camp for nearly a year.

Students were able to ask questions about how Wally Smith was captured, how he used a Bren machine gun and what his different medals were awarded for. Following this talk Bill Thomson then spoke to an assembly of students from across the school about how he has been supported and worked for Royal British Legion causes since his time in the SAS.

Kent Police Educate and Show Dogs' ProwessOne dog, seen holding his training ball.

On Tuesday as part of the school’s drugs education programme Kent Police gave a series of lectures to Key Stage 3 and 4 students about the criminal implications of using illegal drugs. Along with a talk by police officers there was also a demonstration of how the police use sniffer dogs to detect drugs. Later on, the officers gave a talk about the dangers of "legal highs" and shocked everyone with tragic stories of lives cut short.

One fact that surprised many, was that despite the complexities of the training program, the reward for hard work is still a tennis ball and a game of fetch! Pictured to the right is one of the show dogs brought in, happy with his reward!
