Public Services students lead a fitting Remembrance service at Swindon College

09 November 2018

This morning, our Public Services students lead a Remembrance service in front of our memorial stained-glass window, to commemorate the brave soldiers who lost their lives in WW1, specifically focusing on ex-students of Swindon College.  

The list of names from our stained-glass window were read out by the students, along with excerpts from letters sent from the front line.  These added a human element to the service, giving a small insight into the real lives and experiences of the people we remember today.

Public Services Lecturer Jamie Rice said,

‘Once again the Uniformed Public Service students lead the college’s Remembrance Day commemoration. This gives the Uniformed Public Service students an opportunity to demonstrate self-discipline and respect for men and women who serve and have served their country.

We hold the commemoration in the LDC because of the significance of the stained-glass window, which is dedicated to past students who have made the ultimate sacrifice. We were very pleased staff and students joined us this morning to pay our respects.’
