Remembrance Day

This  morning at 11 a.m the whole school fell silent for Remembrance Day. During the week the whole school have been learning about the meaning of the poppy and why we remember. Mr Cunningham, one of our ex-grandparents came in to deliver an assembly all about remembering Laurence Alfred Clift who died aged 26 on July 22nd 1944. Laurence Clift was the last soldier of the Second World War to be added to the War Memorial at Arnot Hill Park. Some children wrote on a special cross from Phoenix that would be placed on the war memorial at Arnot Hill Park today. Mr Dunn, our caretaker, delivered a session in Class 6 about his past experiences in the forces and in the Falklands. The children wrote letters to Mr Dunn asking questions about his experiences.
