Staff and Students Come Together in Remembrance

16th November 2022

Schools from across the Windsor Academy Trust family came together this month to join the nation in remembrance, taking time to pause, breathe and reflect on the service and sacrifices the Armed Forces make on our behalf.

As an Armed Forces friendly organisation, staff and students at each of our nine schools marked Remembrance Day (Friday 11th November) in a variety of poignant ways to proudly  stand with service men and women to mark this important occasion. 

From the Poppy Appeal and wreath laying to student cadets and Remembrance Day parades, here are just some of the ways our family of schools paid its respects: 

Colley Lane Primary Academy

Twelve children were chosen to represent the school at a local Remembrance Day parade organised by Cradley C of E Primary School. Pupils visited the local cemetery and cenotaph to hear readings and poems about the war and join in the parade.

Goldsmith Primary Academy and Rivers Primary Academy

Children from both schools were invited by New Horizons Community Enterprise to join the Peace Tree Remembrance Service to pay their respects alongside members of the local community, including Reverend David Sims and Eddie Hughes MP

Manor Way Primary Academy
Manor Way Primary Academy created a display outside of the school symbolising the poppies of Flanders Field and the soldiers who lost their lives in the World Wars. Year 5 also presented a fantastic historical assembly through the poem of Flanders Field and the well known song of ‘It’s a Long way to Tipperary’ which they performed to school and to parents.
