National Star student Rhys Joyce organised a moving Remembrance Day service to pay tribute to all of the people who have lost their lives in conflict.
Rhys is in his third year at National Star and is an active member of National Star’s Student Parliament.
The Remembrance service took place on 10 November 2017 at National Star’s main site in Ullenwood, and both staff and students attended the event to pay their respects. Rhys read an extract from the poem For the Fallen by Laurence Binyon.
The Remembrance service also included showings of Last Post and Reveille before holding a minute of silence. Rhys received the Student Making a Difference Award for planning the event and playing such an active role in it. At a separate Remembrance Day service Rhys represented National Star and laid a wreath at the Cenotaph in Cheltenham.
Protecting the health of National Star students and residents
To protect the health of our residential students and long-term residents, National Star is limiting access to some of its facilities. This applies to National Star, Ullenwood, Foundation House and Elizabeth House in Gloucester, Bradbury Gardens in Cheltenham, Matrixcare in Malvern and Ledbury Road, Hereford.
These sites are now considered ‘self-isolating’ households. This is a precautionary measure taking into consideration the latest Government advice around ‘at risk’ groups self-isolating for 12 weeks. Only staff, visiting professionals and close family members will be granted access. Stringent infection control measures are in place in order to enable this reduced access to continue.
