The culmination of the pupils’ classwork and understanding of the Great War was presented to parents on Friday 9th November 2018 at 2.00pm. The pupils showcased their ideas through music, dance and drama, alongside contributions from the school choir and band. Each class presented a facet of WW1 which explored the themes of poppies, life in the trenches, propaganda through music, the futility of war and, of course, the act of remembrance.
It was good to see so many ideas presented which ranged from the poignant and serious to vaguely comical – aspects of life which are very much apparent in war zones.
Below is a copy of the programme. Please look through and see the variety of ideas presented that Friday afternoon. It was a truly moving occasion, finishing with our own small act remembrance, including the poem ‘In Flanders Fields’ by John McCrae, The Exhortation -‘They Shall Not Grow Old’, The Last Post and the Kohima Epitaph – ‘When You Go Home’. Thank you to all the pupils of the school for presenting Lest We Forget in this special year of remembrance.
