In the week leading up to half term, Carew Academy’s students were learning about Remembrance Day and making their own poppies.
Some of our staff members decorated our school gates during the half term to allow us to commemorate this occasion with the local community.
On Wednesday 11th November, students and staff gathered behind our poppy adorned gates to honor all those who lost their lives fighting for their country, as well as remembering all those soldiers who are currently serving around the world. A 2 minutes silence was observed very respectfully, culminating in a beautiful rendition of The Last Post played by Howard Hutchins, one of our Occupational Therapists. Members of the local community had also gathered in front of the gates to pay their respects and many commented on how poignant and respectful the tribute was.
We hope you are able take an opportunity to stop by and see our creations and spend a minute remembering what these poppies stand for.
