The children at Holy Trinity school are very good at sharing their school values: service, love and compassion and marked the 100 years anniversary of World War 1 Armistice Day with a whole school ‘Pause Day’ act of Remembrance.
With the help of Rev Andy and some willing volunteers, the children took time out through various practical activities to reflect, to remember, to pray for peace and to create our own giant poppy made up of individual pebbles painted with poppies and with a named soldier who lost their life in battle.
Our children worked really hard to prepare their poppies for Remembrance day and Pause day.
In addition to the above Holy Trinity School were proud to be part of the West End community beacon lighting ceremony on 11 November, reading ‘Tribute to the Millions’ poem as an opportunity to remember together. It was a very moving time and gave us all time to reflect, remember and give thanks.
