On the 18th June 2015 there was a commemorative service at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London attended by a members of The Royal Family and representatives from Wester Hailes Education Centre. WHEC was selected by Waterloo 200 to be one of 200 schools from across the country to carry out a commemorative study to coincide with this year’s Battle of Waterloo bicentenary.
6th year student Reece Paterson said ” It was an honour to represent our community and school at St Paul’s and I was thrilled to have been invited. We learnt a great deal about the Battle of Waterloo and the soldier we researched “
An e-book compiling work from the 200 schools will be given to every school involved and is intended to create a legacy beyond the bicentenary celebrations.
