School creates its own poppy field to pay its respects forÂ Armistice Day
A PRIMARY school has paid its respects to those who gave their lives whileÂ serving their country.
St Peter's Catholic Primary School has revealed its pride after creating its ownÂ poppy fieldÂ to commemorate the centenary of Armistice Day.Â
All the children took part in creatingÂ the display situated at the front of the school where it is most visible.
The children learnt about Flanders Field where poppy flowers began toÂ grow after the burial of theÂ fallen soldiers,Â which was the inspiration for the school'sÂ creation.Â
'˜All the children took part and we feel it is a fitting tribute,' Nina Pearson, art coordinator, saidÂ '˜The children learnt about Flanders Field which was the inspiration for our creation.'
People across Portsmouth will pause to remember those who gave their lives on Sunday.
