On Thursday 8th November over three hundred pupils from nine schools went to the Town Park. We were there to commemorate 100 years since WW1 ended. Year Four represented OALM.

On Thursday 8th November over three hundred pupils from nine schools went to the Town Park.

We were there to commemorate 100 years since WW1 ended. Year Four represented OALM.

We began with a Peace March to remember the poor soldiers who passed away. We marched twice around the park and then lined up next to the bandstand. Four students from Clarendon read poems about the terrible war, One was called ‘In Flanders’ Fields’. After that came two minutes silence to think about those soldiers, followed by a girl playing The Last Post on the trumpet.

David Birks from Trowbridge Museum spoke about soldiers from Trowbridge. It was very moving. All nine schools sang ‘Make me a Channel of your Peace’ and laid a wreath on the War memorial. We had made our wreath from recycled plastic lids.
It was a very special day which I will not forget.
