Students studying for uniformed public services qualifications at City of Wolverhampton College will be leading a two-minute silence in memory of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on Thursday, 15 September.
The group of 70 students will form up in the quadrangle at the college’s Wellington Road campus, in Bilston, and will stand to attention for the tribute at 11am.
The service will be attended by Malcolm Cowgill principal of the college, along with students and apprentices, as well as members of the senior management team and teaching and support staff.
Mr Cowgill said: “As future members of the country’s uniformed public services, the students recognise what an important role they will have to play in ceremonial events and wanted to give their fellow students and college staff the opportunity to come together to pay tribute to Her Majesty and honour her memory in this way.”
Students at the college’s Paget Road campus in Compton will join the tribute via a live video link to their classrooms.
