Children from Farnborough Road Schools marked Remembrance Day in a very special way.
Over 850 children from both schools made their own poppies which were then planted in the school grounds. To make the event extra special, families had been asked to dedicate their poppy to a family member who had lost their life serving their country and these names were written on the leaves of the poppies. Those children who had not lost a member of family were asked to dedicate theirs to 'the unknown soldier'.
480 Junior children joined the Mayor of Sefton in a short ceremony in the poppy field to mark the 11am silence. They listened to the 'Last Post', read poetry together and sang the National Anthem. The 2 minutes silence was impeccably observed by everyone.
Infant children did their silence in school before visiting the poppy field throughout the day.
The children were an absolute credit to their families and school as they all understood the need to be respectful and thoughtful at this special time.
