Students here at Spalding Academy have created a large mural or a soldier from poppies in support of Remembrace Day and The Poppy Appeal.
The larger than life poppy soldier and their dog, made from purple poppies, represent all of the fallen, veterans and service animals that have fought to protect us.
There has been the addition of the anniversary of 75 years since D-Day with pictures, including family members from members of staff who served on that day in Normandy.
The Poppy display has made a real impact on the students and staff of Spalding Academy with memories being shared, learnt and recalled not only during school time but at home as well. The differences in culture and country have also been explored by students who have included information from their home nations, including Lithuania and Poland.
Many students took part in the creation of the display from colouring in poppies to writing poems about war as well as finding out about their own connections to war. ‘We Will Remember Them’ and everyone who has served for our countries.
