We will never forget – Orchard School pays tribute to fallen

November 27 2018

Staff and students stood silent as Orchard School Bristol remembered the fallen in war.

Members of the Horfield school’s Cadets were in full uniform and on parade at 11am.

Before the minute's silence, Head of House Mr Hurran reminded everyone why we do this and stressed that Remembrance is not just about the World Wars but also more recent conflicts.

Orchard School students have been working on a series of activities across the curriculum.

Under the theme of “We Remember”, students in Years 7, 8 and 9 have developed thoughtful and creative pieces, including drawing, paintings and multimedia responses in Art, poems in English, thought provoking Digital Media images and letters in History to commemorate the day.

During tutor time, all pupils have been able to create an individual poppy for a member of the Gloucestershire Regiment who sadly lost their life during World War One. These poppies and other creative pieces have been used to produce a  Remembrance display.
