Over the last six months the School Memorial Garden has undergone a facelift.
The driving force behind this important project has been Mrs Zakary, whose drive and enthusiasm has seen a whole host of helpers give up their time to work on upgrading the garden. Her students have been the backbone of the workforce and they have been a huge credit to the school.
As part of the school’s commitment to remembering the end of World War 1, a rose bush donated by Tilehouse Rotary was planted in the garden. Mrs Zakary and myself had a discussion about the various sculptures of soldiers that had been designed for Remembrance Day and whether we could source one for our memorial garden.
Within 24 hours Mrs Zakary was able to source a soldier figure, which has been kindly donated by Mark Ellis. Mark is the Sales & Marketing Director of Metal Craft Industries UK Ltd and I would like to thank him for his generosity.
The ‘soldier’, along with the memorial rose, will act as a daily reminder of those who fought and served in our armed forces.
