WW1 Legacy 110 Award and Westminster Abbey

The Vale School 'My Mate George' project was awarded Best Overall Remembrance Project 2014-18 at the Legacy 110 Awards in the Tower Of London.





Ex-pupils Jhonatthan and Zach were recognised by the Department for Digital, Culture Media and Sport for the contribution that they and the school had made to World War I remembrance.

The boys were invited to lay flowers at the grave of the Unknown Soldier during the National Service of Thanksgiving to mark the Centenary of the Armistice at Westminster Abbey in front of Her Majesty the Queen, the Royal Family, the Prime Minister and distinguished guests. The service was broadcast on BBC1. 

The whole of the Royal Family walked past the boys at the end... What a fantastic honour and fitting end to such an inspiring project! Please click on the link below to see them in action.
