poppies 3
The History department took a group of Year 8 students to the poignant poppy display on the Hoe at the Naval War Memorial.

Students went to see Poppies: Wave, which has been on the Hoe since 23 August, and also witnessed the Last Post Ceremony at 6pm.

Poppies: Wave, a sweeping arch of bright red poppy heads suspended on towering stalks, was originally seen at the Tower of London as part of the installation Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red.

Students were able to point out relatives on the memorial and join with the public in remembering the fallen from conflict.

"The poppy display and the Last Post ceremony moved our students,"’ said Mr Winders, Head of History.

"For parents who have not seen it yet, this is something you and your child must see.

"Friday 17th November at 6pm will be the last time you can see the Last Post ceremony and it is such an important event to be able to take your child to’.

"The city of Plymouth has played its part in the wars and still has the scars to prove it, that our children can comprehend this is vital so that the next generation can remember and the one after that."
