Remembrance @ Moorgate

13th November 2017

We are lucky that Revd. Tim Flowers, who is very much part of our school community, is also Chaplain to the 4th Battalion of the Mercian Regiment.  He took the time to visit classrooms and talk to the children about his work and the importance of Remembrance.  He kindly agreed to lead our very own service this morning; we were so proud that the minutes silence was impeccably observed, even by our youngest pupils. Following the service, the Pupil Ambassadors, with Revd. Tim, laid a wreath at the Cenotaph in Tamworth.

We are aware that each generation has the responsibility to impress the importance of Remembrance upon the next.  Every child in the school made a poppy and each poppy has a Tamworth soldier to remember; these have been displayed in the main reception.  We even asked families to send in names of service men and women within their family and have displayed these too. 

As a school, we are very proud to be part of Tamworth and it is lovely to remember and value the history of our community in this way.
