First Federation Trust
This year's 'service of Remembrance' began with pupils dressed in their respective Beavers, Rainbow, Cubs and Brownies uniforms parading into the School Hall. The 'Last Post' was then played followed by the two minutes silence.
The service continued in a thoughtful and reflective manner, children from Year 6 gave a moving and powerful recital of two well-known World War 1 poems 'In Flanders Fields and Please Wear a Poppy' while the school sang together 'We Will Remember and It's A Long Way To Tipperary'. The service closed with prayers led by Rev Alex Sharpe.
After the service pupils who were dressed in their respective uniforms walked across to St Paul's church yard and lay crosses on the war graves in the cemetery. These graves had been tended in the lead up to Armistice Day by one of the Year 6 children who had cleaned, planted and watered the new plants in the three graves.
