Year 6 performed a very poignant assembly, marking the centennial of the end of World War One. The quality of the performance and the level of respect shown by the all pupils was outstanding, and it was a very fitting act of remembrance for those who have given their lives, and are still doing, for the protection of our rights.
After the assembly, Years 5 and 6 walked to the war memorial in Victoria Park, to pay our collective respects. Wreathes of poppies, which the children had made, were laid, and some of our children performed fitting poems. It was an opportunity for all us to pay our respects to the fallen, as well as a chance to consider the role that diverse Leicester community played within war.
