They both were proud to represent the College. Ed commented: “It’s good to be role models for some of the new students on the Public Services course.”
Lee Jamieson, Vice Principal, who was there to support the students and attend the service, commented: “It was an honour to represent the College on this important day, alongside colleagues and our students. The students’ professionalism and sense of duty in remembrance was a delight to see.”
