Remembrance Day, November 11th 2014, was marked with a very special assembly at North Lakes School.
Year Six have been learning this term about the impact of World War 1 on Penrith and the history of the Lonsdale Pals, so the children were able to take a leading part in the remembrance assembly.
Wreaths of poppies adorned with poems were laid on a replica cenotaph, and the children sang a beautiful arrangement of “In Flanders Fields”, the 1915 poem from John McCrae.
Some historic film footage was shared, a moving individual soldier’s story was told and a minute’s silence was immaculately observed.
Well done to all of the children and thanks to the many parents and friends who joined us for this special assembly.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
