Stanley Primary School held a Remembrance service around the War Memorial on the school site. Year 6 were the only year group to be at the service but every class “attended” the service as it was live streamed to all their classrooms and the whole school observed the two-minute silence.
Mr Hawley talked about Walter Brown, a Stanley teacher who was killed in the First World War, whose picture we put on the memorial each year and read the poem For the Fallen
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
Amber and Leon put a wreath and the picture of Walter Brown on the memorial and the Last Post was played by Elliot, Megan, Raffi, Theo and Charlie.
We have not been able to have collection boxes in school this year and we are aware that this year has been difficult for all charities. If you would like to support the British Legion Poppy appeal click on the link below:https://www.britishlegion.org.uk/get-involved/ways-to-give/donate
