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!
