Garden of Remembrance
This year many things have been different but the children and staff at Robert Peel Primary School wanted to make sure that we paid our respects and remembered the fallen and serving members of the armed forces of past and present conflicts.
All the children and staff created their own poppies and planted these in our Garden of Remembrance. At the heart of the garden is a replica of the war Memorial which stands in Sandy and each class created a wreath to lay.
Year 6 led a service of Remembrance and every member of the school community was able to stop, take a moment to pause and reflect.
This act has had a profound effect on the children and has, in some way, brought the surrounding community together. Our aim each year is to bring the garden back to life for each of us to stop and pay our respects.
A Nativity Scene and Winter Wonderland has been created by the children and staff, with the children creating a field of wishing stars, waddles of penguins and the trees are covered in baubles and icicles.
