Varndean College pays tribute to the NHS



Instead of clapping for the NHS last night, Varndean College adopted an alternative way to pay tribute to the work of the NHS.

With its campus still closed to the majority of its students, the College found a great use for its currently redundant football pitch. Local grounds maintenance company, SLS, recently contacted the College’s Site Manager offering to paint a tribute onto the grassed fields at the front of the college building and Varndean’s senior management team thought what a fantastic idea and gesture this would be. Varndean College seemed the ideal location in which to paint such a tribute, with its vast grassy hilltop location.

Varndean College Principal, Phil Harland, said “although we cannot stand as a whole college community on a Thursday night to show our appreciation for the NHS, we thought that this would be a superb alternative way to show they are in our thoughts.”
