2014 - One hundred years since the First World War started.

The events and impact of the First World War (1914-18) with the loss of millions of lives, and the damage through injury and loss to millions of others caused people to want to have a way to remember the sacrifice.

At Thornhill poppies are sold as we wear the poppy to remember the men and women whose lives have been affected by conflict. There is a Remembrance Memorial in our reception area.

On November 11th everyone will pause and reflect during our Two minute silence.

Assemblies take place during Remembrance week for all pupils so that they are aware of the sacrifice made by so many and the hope for a peaceful future. By ignoring or letting go of the past we might forget the horrors of war and the importance of working hard to maintain peace.

Lest we forget - we will remember them

In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields.
