Woodlea Junior School

Remembrance Services for Woodlea

Despite Woodlea and the rest of the country being in 'lockdown', we wanted to show our respects for those that have ;lost their lives in conflict.

Our Team Captains went to the Council Offices and listened to the Mayor, witnessed the firing of the cannon and observed the 2 minutes silence.

Meanwhile in school, all the children went outside in their bubbles. Myself and other staff read poems of Remembrance and spoke about the significance of the day, 11.11.11 and the reasoning behind the Red Poppy.

At 11am, the church bells chimed 11 and the canon was heard from the Council Offices: this started Woodlea's observation of the 2 minutes silence.
