Great Barr Academy held a Remembrance Ceremony on Friday 9th November.

Pupils and staff took time to remember and honour those who have sacrificed themselves to secure and protect our freedom.

Each form was given a poppy and card to allow them to give their own message of remembrance. Representatives from each form planted their poppy as part of the ceremony and then listened to a poem which was read by Mrs Allen.  Mrs Abraham’s read a prayer and Mrs Hill then sounded the last post to mark the start of a 2 minutes silence which was observed across the Academy.  It was a very moving ceremony which gave staff and pupils the opportunity to remember and honour those who have paid the price for our freedom.

The poppies were made by Mr Birch and they will be sold to raise money for The Royal British Legion.  A minimum donation of £5 per poppy is requested.  Click here to learn more about the history of the poppy and the work The Royal British Legion do →The Royal British Legion
