Students create poppies for Armistice anniversary
A group of our students created almost 200 hand-made poppies to mark this year’s Armistice anniversary.
Members of the school’s Textile Club attended a service at Merstham Memorial on Monday for the annual service with the Royal British Legion, which included a rendition of The Last Post by a bugler.
Those who were unable to attend the service joined the nation in the two minute silence which was observed throughout the school.
The students had made the poppies during lessons at the school where they were also taught the importance and relevance of November 11.
The stories of some of the names on the memorial were related to them when they spoke with family members and friends at Monday’s service.
It was such a meaningful experience to be part of remembrance with the community.
