Kirk Balk Academy Student Voice honours Remembrance Day service

Whilst Remembrance Day services will be different this year due to the current social restrictions, at Kirk Balk Academy, we felt that it was important to continue to show our respect for those who sacrificed their lives so that we could live ours freely.

On Monday 9th November, students from Kirk Balk walked to the cenotaph to lay a wreath in rememberance where they recited some of the poignan memorial poems such as ‘In Flanders Fields’ by John McCrae. As many in the local community may have not been able to visit the cenotaph this year, the academy also made the tribute video available on the website, Twitter and was sent to all local primary schools and care homes.

As always, we are incredibly proud of all of our students and of the commitment and maturity they showed for such a fantastic cause.

Kirk Balk Academy is a member of the Northern Education Trust.
We constantly focus on standards as we understand outcomes are paramount. Our decision making is driven entirely by what is best for children. By doing this we enhance the life chances of the children and young people in our care.
