Remembrance services observed by all at Haslingden High School

STUDENTS and staff at Haslingden High School held mini Remembrance services for different year groups when poems were recited and wreathes laid.

A collection of poignant Remembrance rocks had been made by students and their families and art work was created for the school’s Remembrance Garden.

All of the school watched a video of two Year 11 students reading a poem just before 11am and then whole school observed the two minutes’ silence.

Year 7 student Leah Price said: “I felt calm and relaxed but also thankful for what the soldiers did for us. They put their lives on the line to save all of us.”

Year 9 student Jamie English said: “I felt a bit upset because I was remembering my grandad.”
Emily Outhwaite from Year 7, added: “Being part of decorating the Remembrance Garden was a great privilege.

“When decorating the garden, it made me think about how hard all the soldiers worked and how they died for us.”
