We have made a dedication for our Roll of Honour as part of the Tower of London Remembers project which you can view here. Our Roll of Honour can be viewed in full here.We have also bought one of the poppies to act as a permanent reminder of our link with the wider national remembrance. Students have been reflecting through our solemn Remembrances services and Mass, as well as special focus sessions. The older students have been watching the excellent BBC Dramatisation "Our World War" which features the heroics and tragic death of an old boy of the College - Maurice Dease VC - available on iPlayer until Thursday and well worth a watch.
