On Friday 10th November, students at The Marches School took part in a Remembrance service in advance of Remembrance Sunday this weekend. Students and staff spent the day taking part in a number of activities to remember those who lost their lives at war. The day began with the whole school coming together for a Remembrance Service and observed a minute’s silence to reflect on the fortunate life we have in Oswestry in 2017.
Year 7 students spent the day exploring the significance of poppies and other flowers used as a symbol of remembrance around Europe. They also discussed what life on the front line for World War One soldiers must have been like for them and their families, through reading the letters that had been written during this time.
Each student made their own poppy or remembrance flower, which have been used to form part of The Marches School wreath. The school’s Head Girl and Head Boy will present the wreath at Sunday’s Remembrance Service at the war memorial in the park.
