Silhouettes of fallen soldiers is the backdrop of remembrance ceremony at St Thomas's
St Thomas's marked the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War with a whole school centenary celebration.
Silhouettes of fallen soldiers, made by students of St Thomas’s, was the backdrop for the ceremony, which saw Mr Deane lead the memorial. With over 400 students gathered, the school’s drama club recited the poem ‘Never to Grow Old’ (Carolyn McAllan) before a two minute silence was observed. A wreath made by Year 4 pupils was laid to conclude the celebration.
Each class (from Nursery to Year 6) celebrated the centenary; from learning ‘In Flanders Fields’ to making prayer books as part of the mural (created by History co-ordinator Miss Stephens) which will be displayed throughout November.
