Poppy Day

11 Nov 2016

 Poppy Day is also known as Remembrance Day or Armistice day. It has been observed since the end of the First World War, to remember and honour all those who suffered in  armed conflict. 

 

Every child in the Junior Section made their own poppy to wear on the 11th of November and contributed to their vetran fund.

 

At the Junior Section Assembly students from Class VI spoke about the significance of Poppy Day. The poem “In the Flanders Field” was recited and the connection explained.

 

The day was acknowledged with a minute of silence in the Assembly to honour the sacrifices of people who are the victims of armed conflict.
