Remembrance Day 2021

Art installation plays central role ...

We took great pride in showcasing our amazing art installation at the front of school last week, commemorating Remembrance Day 2021. The installation was made up of nearly 200 handmade ceramic painted poppies, each created by a member of Year 8. The misty morning made an incredibly poignant start to Remembrance Day and the poppies took centre stage for the school’s traditional acts of remembrance, including a student and member of staff playing the Last Post, signalling the start of the two-minute silence.

Art Curriculum Leader, Jessica Brock, commented,
“The project was inspired by the 'Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red' installation when thousands of poppies swept around the Tower of London in 2014. I am incredibly proud that our poppies were central to school’s Remembrance Day activities. Students were so engaged in both the process and why they were creating them. They should be proud of their accomplishment of creating this installation together.”
