The Palmer Catholic Academy

Remembrance 2018

Students at The Palmer Catholic Academy have been involved in a special project in recent weeks developing an installation for the front of the Academy to mark the centenary of Armistice Day.  Inspired by The ‘Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red’ installation at the Tower of London in 2014. Students embarked on making their own ceramic poppies during specially themed lessons on this year’s Royal British Legion’s theme saying ‘Thank You’ to all who served, sacrificed and changed our world.  Every student in Year’s 7-10 made their own ceramic poppies. The result is over 1000 poppies which make up a river of red on the front lawn of the Academy. The poppies were the culmination of a wider project where all students focused across the curriculum on how we continue to remember and say ‘Thank You’ for the many sacrifices made by so many soldiers across so many countries.

On Friday 9 November, the liturgy leaders participated in a Service of Remembrance which included poems, prayers and readings about sacrifice and service.  This  demonstrates the commitment of our academy motto 'For the glory of God and service to all.'
