of students have helped make a Garden of Remembrance even more special.
Working with Year 7 progress manager Lisa Southee, the Haslingden High School pupils have enhanced the area by painting poppies on all of the classroom windows surrounding the quadrangle.
As well as money from the Parent, Teacher and Friends’ Association at school, the students also organised cake sales.
Every student will be colouring in a poppy, adding the name of a soldier and it will then be displayed near the garden. Ribbons will be tied to the tree in the quadrangle.
Kiera Dootson, 13, said: “We got lots of people to help paint poppies on stones for the garden and around them we asked staff and families for the names of soldiers to put on the stones.”
A Remembrance trail has also been introduced around school.
Students and staff emailed pictures of their family members who fought in both world wars and these are displayed around the school alongside poems which were written by Year 8 students last year.
A special service in school is also due to be held today, Friday, with Harry Turner playing the Last Post.
