Remembrance Day Poems

As part of our Year 9 initiative to honour Remembrance Sunday, a number of students wrote some poems about the Great War, which reflected the sacrifices made by others to give us a better future. These were incredibly moving and captured the vision of the Great War and the personal experiences of soldiers in a very thought provoking and emotive manner. The emotional maturity demonstrated by the Year 9 students who produced poems, and the power of the content that they included, is testament to their ability to display empathy and recognise the importance of life. It was lovely to see so many students take part in this task, which was an optional event, and demonstrate their outstanding writing skills and historical knowledge. Thank you to all of those who seized this opportunity!
