On Friday 11th November, Yr7 students and staff joined cadets from Norfolk ACF and Air Cadets and staff from 42F Kings Lynn ATC, as well as the serving members of RAF Marham, the chairman of the Royal British Legion David Norman and the British legion Standard to commemorate all those lost in combat.
This year saw the centenary of the Battle of the Somme and Yr7 students culminated a week of lessons across Art, Design, History and English with the laying of Poppy-painted pebbles around the school’s flagpole. Alongside the Reverend James Nash Rural Dean of the Woottons and the playing of the Last Post, students and staff remembered and contemplated the sacrifices made by past and present generations in service to this country.
“Students and staff were impeccable and the service was incredibly moving and thoughtful. Something I hope the students will remember for years to come.” – Mr Smith
Special thanks must be given to Mrs Petch, the Cadets, Representatives from Marham and the British Legion and Mr Eveson and the Art Department for the time and effort in the decorating of the beautiful poppy pebbles the Year 7’s created.
