Today the boys and girls of Leswalt Primary headed over to Leswalt Parish Church where they were met by three ladies of the congregation. The ladies told the pupils about the ceramic poppy garden, created by a member of the congregation, one poppy for each Leswalt parishioner lost in WW1 and WW2. They also told us about the stunning poppy fall outside the church (1564 poppies were crocheted, knitted or felted to create this memorial for the 1564 days WW1 lasted). Together we all held a 2 minute silence to take some time to pay our respects.
The P4-7 class had printed a poppy banner under the guidance of Mrs Copeland our art teacher. The children felt it was a fitting tribute to hand this over to the church so that this can be put on display in the village hall on Remembrance Sunday.
