Remembrance Day Parade

To mark Remembrance Day on 11 November, St Andrew’s College pipe band and cadets took part in a parade to commemorate the day and date that armed forces stopped fighting in World War I.

This moving event takes place every year and sees St Andrew’s College boys marching from the school to Church Square to remember those who have lost their lives in various conflicts around the world. The Head of the Diocesan School for Girls, Mrs Shelley Frayne, Head of St Andrew’s Prep, Mr Gareth Allman and Head of St Andrew’s College, Mr Paul Edey, together with the Heads of other Grahamstown schools, laid wreathes in remembrance of those who fell.

2014 marks the centenary of the start of the First World War. St Andrew’s College, outside of England, has the biggest number of war casualties in terms of school boys.
