India from Year 8 has knitted poppies in aid of the Poppy Appeal 2016 raising funds for the Royal British Legion. She had no idea how popular they would be amongst both students and staff and, having brought in the first dozen, was asked immediately for more! Together with her mother and sister, India has now made approximately 80 of the poppies.
She said ‘I have spent a couple of hours every night knitting more; each takes about 20 minutes, and mum helps insert the black centre’. We have already asked her to start making some ready for next year!
Every year the School has an Act of Remembrance at 11 o’clock on 11th day of the 11th month with a two minute silence. This is supported by a series of special assemblies.
