Isca Academy in Exeter is taking part in First World War centenary project The Last Post on November 11th 2014 at 6:30 pm joining hundreds of groups around the UK in a musical tribute that will remember local World War One history and see the Last Post played on a variety of different instruments.
All students at Isca were given the task over the summer to investigate their family history and discover what they were doing during WW1. They have uncovered stories of heroism, ordinary life carrying on in the face of huge obstacles, families in other places of Europe and their roles during the war.
Isca’s event is called CENOTAPH and will record this personal family research from children at Isca, as well as their responses to the famous ‘Ode of Remembrance’. Using song, film projection and art we recreate the journey of soldiers leaving Devon to join the army at the Front.
Some of the images created by students have been attached, but we would also welcome a photographer to join us at the event if possible. The plans for a 360 degree projection of film and art images is impressive and should be most spectacular.
