Students from Broadford Secondary College were honoured to lay a hand-made wreath at the Menin gate in the 100th Anniversary year of the armistice of the first World War.
In 2015, students from Broadford Secondary College were given the honour of laying a wreath at the Menin Gate. This did not proceed because of the trip cancellation due to a terrorist attack in Paris.
In 2018, the students will return to the Menin Gate with the original wreath [cared for at school for three years] and complete the commitment made by the class of 2015.
This wreath consists of numerous hand-made fabric poppies which have been part of Broadford Secondary College’s contribution to the 5000 Poppie project.
