Y7 Remembrance Assembly

The first of the Remembrance Assemblies began with Year 7.

This was lead by 7JCO and Mr Cotton.  Phoebe and Gracie read out letters that were written by soldiers from the Accrington Pals, who were the 11th Battalion East Lancashire Regiment.  All the members were raised in and around the town of Accrington.  Barnaby then read the poem, ‘In Flanders Field’, written during the First World War by Canadian Physician Lietenant-Colonel John McCrae.

7JCO have been raising money for The Royal British Legion charity by selling poppies at break and lunch times.
