Olive Blackburn Pupils Mark Centenary of End of Great War

Pupils at the Olive School, Blackburn have been reflecting on the meaning of Remembrance Day and remembering the sacrifices made by those in the armed services during a ceremony at the school.

Children brought in pebbles to paint red or black, which members of the School Council then used to make a poppy shaped memorial from outside the school entrance.

Royal British Legion poppies have also been sold in school.

Year 6 pupil Ismail Shah said:

“We decided to create our poppy as a school as it has been exactly 100 years since World War One. It was enjoyable and everybody in school participated in making the poppy and our school council enjoyed putting the final piece together.”

Julie Bradley, Executive Principal, said:

“We have woven acts of remembrance into many areas of the curriculum in the run up to Armistice Day as we feel it is important to involve and encourage all the children to remember the sacrifices made by the generation before them.”
