Humphry Davy School14 Nov 2023On Sunday, Mrs Oliver, along with senior students Jesse and Faye, attended the remembrance day service in Penzance. Both students were superb ambassadors for the school, laying a wreath on behalf of our whole community. It was great to see other HDS students representing local service organisations and wearing their uniforms with pride.
On Friday, our school took part in a two minutes silence. Students were encouraged to wear their service uniforms on the day and were invited to join Mrs Oliver, our senior students and Year 7 students for a short service in the gallery to commemorate HDS students of the past.
We will remember them.
