This Wednesday, in Year One, we remembered and commemorated the soldiers who never came home. We discussed why we wear poppies and joined together in a prayer service to reflect on the sacrifice of these people. As part of our prayer service we offered up our poppies to remember the service men, women, animals, nurses, children and many others who gave up their tomorrows for our todays.
We then went outside at 11am to stand in 2 minutes of silence in memory of all who died. The children were respectful and stayed silent the whole time. When we were walking back into the classroom one of the children said, “that was one of the most beautiful things ever!” We would have to agree, the whole school commemorated such a special day in a reverent, respectful and thoughtful way. It was a very humbling moment.
