The school war memorial, initially dedicated to students and staff who gave their lives in the Great War, is situated in the KS4/5 Library; known as the War Memorial Library. It was added to again after World War II. The war memorial is important to the life of the school and we mention it often.
As the War Memorial Library is for the use of KS4 and 5 students and staff only and we are aware that the KS3 students do not get to see the memorial, a timetable of visits has been arranged for the Year 7 students to visit during Form Time this term.
Remembrance Day takes place on 11 November every year in Commonwealth Countries to remember the members of the armed forces who have died since the end of the First World War. People wear remembrance poppies to show that they have not forgotten those who have died. The Discovery Library has a special Remembrance display of war time story books for you to borrow. Tell us what you have read and whether you enjoyed it! You may also like to write a review recommending the book to others.
