King Harold Academy holding Remembrance Evening
Staff and pupils of King Harold Academy are holding a remembrance evening to commemorate those who have given their lives for our country and those that continue to serve their country today.
The evening - Wednesday, November 16 (5.30pm-7pm) - will feature a variety of performances including dance, poetry and song.
During the week of remembrance students will also be involved with a variety of curricular activities including poetry competitions, creative writing and the completion of more than 300 clay handmade poppies that will be on display.
Tickets will be available about two weeks before the event. Visit the school website for full details.
Event organiser and English teacher Stuart Springthorpe said: "Remembrance is a very important time of the year and symbolises a message which can never be forgotten.
"It is our duty as educators to inform, teach and help make aware to the younger generation the sacrifice that others have made in order for them to lead free lives today.
"It will be their job in the future to carry this message forward to ensure that it is never forgotten.
"Waltham Abbey was an area greatly affected by war. One only has to view the names on the memorials in the area and in the Abbey itself to understand and recognise the level of sacrifice made."
