Pupils across the Trust mark Remembrance

Pupils across the Trust mark Remembrance

As November marked the important time of Remembrance, pupils and students took part in a special week of events across the Trust.

At Henry Hinde Infant School, members of the Beavers and Rainbows were invited to wear their club uniforms to school for Remembrance Day, with all pupils learning about why we observe a minute’s silence to show respect for fallen soldiers.

This year, pupils from Henry Hinde Junior School helped to create a dedicated Poppy Garden in the grounds of the school as a mark of Remembrance. While, Ashlawn School students also marked the occasion by discussing the importance of Remembrance and the sacrifices that soldiers have made for our freedom and way of life here in Britain.

James Higham, CEO of the Transforming Lives Educational Trust, said: “We believe it is incredibly important for our pupils and students to learn about the significance of Remembrance for British life, our culture and heritage.

“Millions of men and women have sacrificed their lives for our country and it is humbling to see our pupils and students showing how respectful and grateful they are.”
