Statement from The Very Rev’d John Dobson, Dean of Ripon.

 

2016 finds us at the end of a long period of change for our Service Children and their schools.  Many here have experienced the ‘army rebasing’ plans that have resulted in hundreds of new starters arriving in North Yorkshire’s schools from Germany, Canada and many other countries from around the world.  We feel privileged to share with these children and young people their life stories of change, challenge and celebration and we join together on this Remembrance Day to reflect on these themes and the skills of resilience, adaptability and  resourcefulness that they demonstrate to us all . Our thanks go to Dean John, Canon Barry and Ripon Cathedral’s staff for their enthusiasm and support. Thanks too to North Yorkshire County Council staff for their commitment to these amazing children and young people. During today’s service the new MKC Heroes standard will be dedicated. The artwork on display today is contributed by all the children whose postcards reflect their individual stories.  Thanks too to Outwood Academy, Ripon, for their help with the wonderful poppy exhibition.
