At 11am the bell rang and the school fell silent. Images of poppies were displayed on the large screen. The one minute silence was broken by the sound of Mr Williamson playing The Last Post on the bugle.
Today the whole school took part in our annual Remembrance Service. Pupils learned about the importance of this day and why we pay our respects to those who have lost their lives in War, as well as thinking about those who are in conflict today.
The service was concluded with a poem, written by an unknown solder of the First World War, read by P7 pupils:-
“The blood swept lands and seas of red,
Where Angels dare to tread.
As God cried a tear of pain as the angels fell,
Again and again.
As the tears of mine fell to the ground
To sleep with the flowers of red”
Thank you to all those who were able to buy a poppy in school this week in support of The Scottish Poppy Appeal.
