Remembering the Fallen

Students at Freebrough Academy have again marked the armistice with a series of assemblies within the school focussed on local and national remembrance. The focus of the British Legion Poppy appeal this year was how the money raised from the poppy appeal is used and students from the Year 9 History group presented an assembly to other students to explain this.

A number of Year 7 students including; Harvey, Kai, Kaitylin and Danielle wrote messages to the ‘unknown soldier’ to stand beside the permanent memorial. The memorial, located in the school, was designed by students and created last year at the centenary of the start of the Great War. Remembrance matters deeply to the students of Freebrough Academy and two minutes silence was observed impeccably on Wednesday as a mark of respect for the fallen.
