Remembrance Day with St Mary's Primary School


One hundred years after the start of World War One, the whole school community gathered in church.

Children from four to eleven stood in silence for two minutes, which began with the Last Post and concluded with the words of remembrance.

All the children in the school made their own poppies and the service, led by our Children's and Youth Minister, Tim Broadbent, included children reading their poems and prayers. Volunteer Harriet Maunsell movingly described the loss of her great uncle Bertie, who died on the western front almost exactly a century ago.

After the service, Simon Harvey interviewed Caitlin and Abbie, who spoke about the significance of Remembrance.
