Poppy Power

Our friends in Tychy have put together a stunning display of artwork focusing on the poppy which is a powerful symbol of peace.


Poppies form an important part of remembrance day celebrations in the UK.  Wreaths are laid at the Cenotaph in London on the Sunday closest to 11th November.  In November 2014, to mark the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War our school took part in a special National online assembly broadcast live from the Tower of London.  It included music and poetry as well as lots of information about the First World War.  We learnt about the poppy art installation at the Tower called ‘ Blood Swept Land and Seas of Red’ created by Paul Cummins to mark 100 years since the first full day of British involvement in World War One.  It contains 888,246 ceramic poppies, one for each British military casualty.
