During the course of Friday the Rector, Mr Engstrand, along with School Captains Eve McLennan, Sam Stubbs and Vice-Captain Emma King visited the site of the old Inverness Royal Academy to lay a wreath in memory of former pupils and staff of Inverness Royal Academy who lost their lives in battle.
The wreath was attached to the commemorative gates of the Midmills building that were commissioned after World War II to remember the dead of that conflict. Another wreath was laid by ‘Workshop & Artists Studio Provision Scotland’ (WASPS) who now occupy what is ‘Inverness Creative Academy’ as it undergoes the second phase of renovation which will transform the building into workspaces for creative industries and cultural social enterprises.
Our thanks go to Kirsten Body for her collaboration on behalf of ‘WASPS’ in remembering the fallen of Inverness Royal Academy.
On Remembrance Sunday Sam very thoughtfully revisited Midmills on his own in his role as a Sergeant in the Army Cadet Force (because numbers were limited at Cavell Gardens) while Emma formally laid the school wreath in her other role as Petty Officer Cadet, Sea Cadets. We are very grateful to both students for representing the school as well as their youth organisations.
All virtual year group assemblies this week will focus on the theme of remembrance and a two minute silence will be observed at 11.00 a.m. on Wednesday the 11th of November.
