Weydon School Remembers The Fallen

poppy 100 (Small)Weydon School carried out a one-minute silence to remember the fallen.  The Year 7 students stood in a configuration of 100 all displaying poppies, to commemorate the end of the First World War. In addition, the Student Senior Leaders organised for one of their students to play ‘The Last Post’ on a trumpet while the school stood in silence. A very moving and memorable event for all the staff and students.

Poppy Display (Small)In addition, in the main reception of the school, there is an amazing Poppy display.  The Poppy display was made by prospective Weydon students who visited the school on open evening in October. Different elements of the display have been created in the different specialisms within DT. It roughly took 6 hours to make the poppies and assemble.

Curriculum Area Leader, Mrs Caroline Jeffery commented: “I am really pleased with the outcome and it is lovely to have a sense of community. The display represents not only the remembrance of 100 years since the first world war but a sense of giving and caring which Weydon students are so good at doing”.
