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.
