We Will Remember Them 

On Friday 10th November 2017, Mayar, Shaun and Reece, three Year 6 pupils from Goosewell Academy, Plymouth, travelled to Wiltshire to represent service children across the south west of England at the Field of Remembrance Ceremony in Royal Wootton Bassett Field. They laid a poppy wreath on behalf of service personnel’s children in the south west.

Before the ceremony, the children, whose parents are, or have been, serving in the armed forces, planted over 320 crosses, each with a message of remembrance and thanksgiving from school children from the Plymouth area. 

Taking part in one of five national Remembrance services was a moving experience for Mayar, Shaun and Reece as they stood to listen and reflect upon the words and songs shared by faith leaders, a local school choir and Military Wives choir. 

Mr Stephens, Headteacher of Goosewell Academy, was very proud of his pupils who had an early journey starting at 5.30 a.m. He is also grateful to the Royal British Legion or arranging the visit.
