Children from Cliftonville Primary School have been learning about the importance of Remembrance Day and chose to raise money for the Royal British Legion. Members of the Key Stage 2 School Council sold poppies to staff and children around the school as well as selling other poppy appeal merchandise, such as snap bands and reflectors, after school on the playground. The School Council also decided that they would like to lay a remembrance wreath at the local war memorial to pay their respects. A School Council representative from each year group was voted for and on the afternoon of Friday 10th November, these six children walked to the war memorial at Trinity Gardens and held their own Remembrance Ceremony. Each child played a part – whether it was reading a poem, a prayer or laying the wreath. They also held a two minute silence. All the children involved showed respect and maturity and were a credit to the school.
