Poppies

Students at Hedingham School have been busy planting 100 packets of poppy seeds to commemorate the Centenary of the First World War. Each form group was given the opportunity in July to plant a packet of seeds in the school bus park and at the front entrance to have them flower in time for Remembrance Day. This was part of the Centenary Poppy Campaign organised by the British Legion. Students also learnt about the role of the poppy, how it became a national symbol of remembrance and how their money donated helps to continue to find the British Legion’s work for the Armed Forces and their families.
