Kirkcolm Primary School

– what have we been up to?

Kirkcolm Comes Together for Remembrance Day


Our very responsible pupils joined with their community to pay respects to the sacrifices of others on Remembrance Day.

Senior pupils attended a service with Reverent Burl, Councillor Willie Scobie and other community members.  Prayers were shared and a lone piper marked the end of  a minute’s silence.


The children read a Remembrance Day senses poem to the gathering before Olivia presented a poppy stem to ‘Tommy’.  Tommy is a silhouette figure that has been mounted on the lamp post adjacent to the village entrance.  It is hoped he will be a permanent fixture to greet those arriving into our village.

The remainder of the school walked up to the village war memorial to pay their respects there. Breagh and Oliver read a poem for all to reflect upon.  The children also marked the 1 minute silence.

Lest We Forget!
