During the week leading up to Remembrance Day, the history department delivered assemblies on the significance of wearing the poppy and the contribution of soldiers from the Commonwealth in both World Wars.
Pupils were asked to write poems about Remembrance and it was very hard to judge a winner from all the entries. Our winner and all runners up received gift vouchers.

Remembrance Day, Remembrance Day
When we will remember
The soldiers who paved the way
So that we can live our lives today
They died for our protection
They did it in perfection
Them Germans learnt their lesson
A lot of people lost their lives
Strong men who could not be revived
With no fear in their heart
Given everything they had
It was their time to depart
Goodbye soldiers, thank you for everything
Now a two minute silence when we hear that bell ring
