BACA's Wall of Remembrance

BACA’s Wall of Remembrance

As we enter the Christmas season we stop to think about what the spirit of this festive time really means.  Through projects, such as Brighton in Need and volunteering our time at elders Christmas lunches we give what we can to help others.

In November students and staff also took time to reflect, but then it was on remembrance and what it means to them.

For staff, remembrance means:

  • ‘Remembrance for me is an opportunity to think of/appreciate all those who sacrificed themselves'
    Ms Tinnuche-Ayling
  • 'They died so that we might live in freedom - their sacrifice should not be forgotten.’ Ms Bacchus
  • ‘A time to reflect on the people that have lost their life during conflicts in the world.’ Mr Lelliott

Why do we remember?

  • ‘It is important that we remember so that we can help stop history repeating itself.’ Ms Bacchus
  • ‘It is easy to forget the sacrifices that our armed forces have to endure in order to keep us safe and I certainly do not ever want to them to feel underappreciated or forgotten.’ Ms Hamm
  • ‘Both my grandfathers fought in the Second World War and their fathers in the First World War so I choose to think about what they risked and lost.’ Mr Wistow

Our students created posters that share the significance of remembrance, and what it means to them.  These posters now make up BACA's Wall of Remembrance, which is permanently on display in our restaurant:
