Tributes on Armistice Day

Posted by & filed under News, Uncategorized.

Inspired by the display of ceramic poppies at the Tower of London, students at Nailsea School have spent the last week making poppies and writing on their own tributes to the heroes of World War I and those who have died in other conflicts.  Teachers Julie Baldwin and Kate Gerrard collected the poppies and made a display on the steps of the school’s atrium.  The display became the centre point on Armistice Day when the whole school came together to hear Headteacher Chris Wade read the poem ‘For the Fallen’ by Laurence Binyon and Year 8 student Katherine Dumbell played the last post before the whole school joined the rest of the country for 2 minutes silence.
