To mark the Centenary anniversary of WW1 and Remembrance Day, we had a very special guest visit on Friday 21st November. John Gallagher, In Pensioner W06, who served in the Royal Ordnance Corp was welcomed by Mr Tim Harrison, Chair of Governors, as part of the school’s 100 year anniversary remembrance event programme. Members of the school took part in a whole school homework collecting the principles and values that their own families stand for and gathered them together in the form of a giant poppy which has been on display in the school’s rotunda.
The remembrance and giant poppy programme was inspired by a year 7 class who, as part of their study of Gulliver’s Travels, discussed values and principles. In the novel there is a dispute about which end a person should break their egg! In the novel 6000 men die for the right to break their egg on either end. The class discussed the values and principles that they would stand for and went home to gather ideas from their families. Mr Ross, Deputy Head Teacher, and The Pastoral Team were so moved by the work of the students that they set a whole school homework and collected the school community’s ideas together inside the giant poppy
Year 9 students Rob Cassar, Lauren Abbott, Elizabeth Salmon and Agne Pasvenskaite, cadets from The Royal Horse Artillery, King’s Troop, along with Hayleigh Larkin and Geovanna Oliveira Almeida greeted Mr Gallagher and gave him a tour of the school before he added his own personal values, ‘family, country and the right to religious beliefs’, to the poppy display. He gave the Head Teacher, Mrs Wendy Bower, a gift of a Chelsea Pensioner teddy bear that will be used as a prize for the student who designs a new school flag representing the school and community values and principles as inspired by the school’s centenary remembrance programme.
