Remembering Remembrance As part of our events for Remembrance Day 2018, Howard (from the Royal British Legion) came in to talk to the whole school to tell us a little of his experience, but mainly to enlighten us about how the money we contribute by buying poppies, is spent. We asked lots of questions and Howard encouraged us to STOP and say THANKYOU on November 11th. We dressed in red for the day and contributed more money to this worthwhile cause. Key Stage 2 wrote thoughtful and moving letters to thank Howard for his visit. We were very pleased to receive the following response from Howard, which shows the power of saying ‘Thank you’.
Just to let you know that the messages have arrived and I have read through them all . Receiving messages like that makes all the work we do worth while. I am so deeply touched that the children not only enjoyed the talk but wrote such meaningful replies. I will of course reply to all the questions, but would you please pass on my gratitude to them all. It would be an honour to come again and to talk to the children, with your permission of course. Regards Howard
