Armistice Day 2019

We will remember them.

poppy

Every year on 11th November the nation unites to mark the wars that have taken place and to remember the brave men and women who fought in them to secure and protect our freedom.  This year Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day fall on Sunday 10th November and Monday 11th November, will also mark 101 years since the end of the First World War.

For almost a century the poppy has been a poignant symbol of remembrance, which originated from the First World War poem In Flanders Fields by Canadian officer John McCrae

This year at Tangmere Primary Academy the children will pay tribute by creating their own ‘poppy’ art to show their respects. These pieces of art will be displayed within St. Andrew’s Church on Saturday 9th November and Sunday 10th November.
