Lesson Cover Supervisor, Tania Clewley, wanted to make a Remembrance Wall to observe the week of Remembrance, and came up with a truly creative display in Reception. She made a “curtain” of poppies, suspended by fishing line, which is an art installation in itself.
Photographs of relatives of both students and staff who served in the Armed Forces are displayed amongst the poppies alongside their individual stories and experiences. The poppies sway gently and bring to mind John McCrae’s 1915 poem, “In Flanders Fields” -
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
