PUPILS at Barfield School in Farnham joined with staff to create an array of poppies, each one displaying a message of remembrance.

The school came up with the idea for the creative display at the beginning of term and pupils have been busy decorating the poppies with both traditional and personal messages. The individual poppies were then arranged to create a large poppy in the middle of the school’s roundabout.

The aim of the exercise was to help the children learn about Armistice Day, Remembrance Sunday and the significance of the ceremonies and the poppy symbol.

Headmaster James Reid was very proud of the display and said, “Every year we mark Remembrance Day with a special assembly in which the whole school is involved.

“The children learn a lot from this and their messages of remembrance are a wonderful way of acknowledging the sacrifice made by all those men and women who gave their lives for this country”.
