Remembrance Day at Mount Kelly

Posted: 12th November 2018

Pupils, staff and families marked Remembrance Day across the weekend at Mount Kelly. A Remembrance Service was held at the Prep on Friday 10 November and in the College Chapel on Sunday 12 November, followed by an Act of Remembrance on the Parade Ground. Colonel Scott Adams RAMC gave a moving address in Chapel and the names of all the fallen Old Mount Kelleians were read out by the Heads of the CCF, Head Boy and Head Girl.  The Head of the CCF lead the Guard of Honour impeccably.

On the evening of Saturday 11 November, Mount Kelly, Tavistock College and the Stannary Brass Band participated in a wonderful concert at St Eustachius’ Church in Tavistock. Music of Hope and Remembrance marked the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Armistice and raised funds for the Royal British Legion.

In the lead up to Remembrance Day, pupils at the Prep each made a beautiful felt poppy for an installation put together by Mrs Floyd in the Front Hall.
