A TEAM

Rossendale Free Press - - Schools News -

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.
