West Exe school marks Remembrance Day
Royal British Legion poppies and other Remembrance items have been on sale at the school this week and assemblies have taken place with all year groups to talk about the importance of the day.
The school also put together a poppy display and they held a two minute silence on the 10th of November, which was followed by a student playing the ‘Last Post’ on the Eye.
Julie Fossey, Headteacher at West Exe School said:
“It’s so important for us to mark this day in school and make sure that all children have the chance to understand why we hold Remembrance Day every year and the opportunity to pay their respects to those who have given their lives for our freedoms.”
Moira Marder, CEO of the Ted Wragg Trust said:
"Everyone at the trust is glad to hear that West Exe made sure to mark Remembrance Day in a manner befitting its significance. It’s lovely that they put a poppy display together and that a student played the ‘Last Post."
