Many of our usual celebrations, ceremonies and events have not been able to happen this year, including the annual church Remembrance service and Cenotaph ceremonies. However, the staff and children were determined to mark the huge sacrifice so many had made for our freedom.
The children learned about the poppy, what it stands for and the importance of showing respect to all the fallen men and women. Silhouettes of WW1 soldiers were decorated with poppies, words about the war and how grateful we are for their sacrifice and a two minute silence was held, with each bubble standing in respectful silence, facing a poppy wreath.
This was certainly not the traditional service we would normally hold and the photos of the socially distanced bubbles add even more emotion to what is always a poignant event but, in what has been a very strange year, our school family was once again able to stand ‘together’, albeit for a few minutes, in recognition of the brave men and women who have paid the ultimate price in defense of our country.
